Haddenham Mummers celebrated their 40th Anniversary with a special presentation of their folk drama at the Haddenham Ceilidh on Saturday evening, 3rd December.
The occasion was also notable for the inclusion of new thespians in the shape of Rob Mcloughlin and Joel Thorogood, helping to maintain the Mummers' tradition — and John Heydon (primary host of the Haddenham Ceilidhs) reprising his Doctor Cure-all role, some 20 years since his last appearance!
Since their inception back in 1976, the Haddenham Mummers have raised over £25,000 for charitable causes.
