Miscellany: We have been going since 1973 and have performed every year since at Christmas time. The play uses a traditional script that has been allowed to develop slowly over the years.
The traditional format even includes a “Green” Father Christmas and the usual suspects.
The World Famous Ashdowm Mummers also perform Border Dances from the Welsh Marshes and other parts of the country.
