Friday 21st December — Tour of the Haddenham pubs
On Friday 21st December the Mummers will be touring various cafes, restaurants and pubs in Haddenham, performing their world famous folk play.
Here's the tour schedule, with approximate timings:
|5:30pm||Tickety Brew — see details below|
|7:30pm||House of Spice|
|9.00pm||Rose & Thistle|
|9:45pm||King's Head (again)|
Haddenham has some excellent pubs and we are in danger of losing some of them — so please come out to support the Mummers and at the same time helping to swell the coffers of our pubs — enjoy a brilliant occasion.
In addition to the pubs, the Mummers will be also performing at the brilliant Tickety Brew on 21st December, starting at 5.30pm. Tables should be booked with Tracey in advance. Why not take in the Mummers at this intimate venue? According to Tim Chowns: "You can take pictures and we will sign autographs, both of which could be worth a lot of money in the future."
