Brief note as follows:-
"Recorded on the 30th January 1971 from an unnamed informant at the 'Robin
Hood,' Brinsley, Notts.
The informant, who was a former resident of Victoria Street in Eastwood, took
part in a Guysers play in 1940, playing the part of Beelzebub. He remembered
that they had blackened faces and that one of the other characters was a Doctor.
Only two lines of the text were remember, and these were not noted."
