Mummers’ Play

We are very fortunate to have Prize Old Mummers from Portsmouth attending the Green Man Fest to perform their short Mummers’ Play in town centre pubs. Mummers’ plays are a traditional broadly comic folk play that can be traced back at least to 1296. They are usually performed at Christmas and on Plough Monday. The plays have lots of modern/local variations and the theme of Prize Old Mummers 2023 play will be announced soon. See them at:

11am at The Weaving Shed/Il Fiume.

12pm in Westbury Gardens by the war memorial

1pm in The Stumble Inn, a friendly traditional local pub with well-kept real ales where you can relax without canned music, pool tables and fruit machines and just enjoy the banter. Children and dog friendly.

2pm in The Three Horseshoes: All you need to know about the Horseshoes is – “Brilliant pub, great music, great welcome, great atmosphere, great beer”.

3pm in the Tithebarn Workshops courtyard, a wealth of beautiful local crafts and a tea room.

All times are “Morris Time” i.e. approximate!
