Join us for our 50th year of performing our Traditional Mummers’ Play.

After another interesting year, December sees The World Famous Ashdown Mummers’ come back to life (were they ever alive?) with the 50th Christmas performance of their traditional Sussex Mummers' Play on 17th December 2022. Known internationally for their performances of this mysterious but very entertaining play in the Ashdown Forest area just before each Christmas, they will maintain their tradition with a one day tour of most of their favourite Sussex pubs. You can watch a video of our 2022 cut down Covid play here.

The traditional play features the well-known characters of St George, the Turkish Knight, Beelzebub, Old Father Christmas and the Doctor, plus many more. This year there will be five performances as follows, all in pubs in front of the main bar.
