The Winchcombe Mummers Journey to 2013

Abstract

In 2005 Cressida unearthed an ageing hundred year old booklet in her grandparent's archive describing the Hitchin Mayer tradition. Two characters leapt from these moth eaten pages and rampaged through the dignified home county's market town streets: Mad Moll and Old Tom. Having more recently moved to the Cotswold town of Winchcombe Cressida has engaged with the Winchcombe Mummers.
