Major apologies to everyone. Unfortunately our quiet evening on 6th Jan (12 Night) for intellectual discussion and musical appreciation will now be a riotous celebration of all things Christmassy, featuring outrageous overacting, gratuitous ad libbing, and ear splitting wassailing. I know you'll all be very disappointed that we're not going to be sitting around quietly, discussing the merits of Turkish Knights and King George, and studying the history of the Gloucester Wassail. What can I say? I'm afraid we're just going to have to make the best of a bad situation, sing the night away, cheer the players and maybe even drink more than one shandy. So get your best costumes, tatters and tinsel out of the cupboard, shake off the dust and get ready for 12th Night 2019.
Meanwhile, Happy Christmas from us to you, thank you for your fantastic support during 2018, and we'll see you on the 6th Jan!! Wassail!!
Fantastic tatters sheep made by the children of Rowledge C of E Primary School, one of 200+ nativity figures from 44 schools just gone on display at Guildford Cathedral. So no bleating about how difficult a tatters coat is to make, big expectations for lavish tatters at 12th Night... Baaaa.
Shh... (whisper) don't tell anyone, but on the 6th Jan there's a quiet gathering for intellectual discussion and musical appreciation in various Guildford town centre pubs. It will be a solemn, reflective occasion, and won't at all feature riotous mumming featuring OTT acting driven by increasing consumption of beer. And in particular, any musical elements will certainly not involve loud and corset ripping wassailing. Oh no, certainly not. 😇

'tis that time of the year already, and 12th Night isn't that far off. If anyone wants to take part in the Mummers Play, or assist in entertaining the 12th Night revellers at The Angel - storytelling, music, or whatever - can you please message us. Wassail!

Pigrim Morris Men were proud to visit our chosen Charity Challengers earlier this week to hand over our donation of £710 - which of course is money that YOU put into those lovely orange buckets in response to our amazing dancing.
This is a great local charity doing amazing work with disabled children and young people and we're pleased to support them - great work guys!
