MISCELLANEOUS NOTES ON NOTTINGHAMSHIRE AND DERBYSHIRE FOLK DRAMA RECORDED BY PETER T. MILLINGTON: EASTWOOD Notts SK 4646
Brief note as follows:-
"Recorded in July 1971 from R. Wilkinson of Eastwood.
A 'Saint George and Dragon play' was still performed by children in the pubs at
Christmas. The play ended with one coming in wearing a top hat and a long coat,
and singing a song threatening to curse the ale if no money was given.
The same informant also stated that children also performed a 'Guy Fawkes play'
about November the 4th."
