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.

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."
