St Albans Mummers – Boxing Day 2022

Mon Dec 26th
  11:30 to 15:00
 St Albans, UK


The St Albans Mummers are out and about again on Boxing Day 2022

On Boxing Day this year the Mummers play of St George and the Dragon will be performed, for the 55th year, at five locations around the city centre by the St Albans Mummers. The play itself is getting on for 200 years old.

Our traditional mummers play features a less than serious look at life, death and resurrection, with several fierce battles involving St George and unlikely opponents, dubious cures unknown to science, topical references, excruciating poetry and awful jokes. All in all great fun for all the family!

The first performance was in 1967 and the play is essentially the same today but the cast has changed a bit over the years and this time we have two new actors, see if you can spot them ! Some of the original audience still come along and bring their grandchildren! Each performance is a little different, as we like to include topical items and interact with the audience. The timetable is –

11.30 The Museum / Old Town Hall, 12.20 The White Hart Hotel, 13.00 West End of St Albans Abbey, 13.50 The Fighting Cocks, 14.40 The Clock Tower

At the end of each performance we ask people to throw money into the “hat” (some people might say that it is a bucket ! ) so that we can donate to charity. We are unable to take card payments, as a suitable reader is not available yet, so please bring as much cash as you can spare. The more we can collect the more we can donate so thank you in advance.
