Thameside Mummers (The Fabulous Thameside Mummers) [Website]


Folk Play-only Group

Home Town:

Leigh-on-Sea, Grid Ref.: TQ8485, Lat.& Long.: 51.5377, 0.6607


Thameside Mummers have performed traditional Mumming Plays at fairs and festivals thoughout this fair land. We are famed for our plays; for the quality of our performance and for our thirst. We don't collect for Charity (except in the run up to Christmas) we make it quite clear that whatever the Public choose to give and whatever we get paid for performances will be invested in beer!
