Photo of five actors dressed in costumes made from paper strips. The caption reads;

"NO, IT wasn't that five people were afflicted by heady illnesses brought on by exposure to that rare-for-1979 experience, sunshine.

Members of the Omoro Theatre Company, of Rectory Road, West Bridgford, were all suitably garbed for a performance of a traditional mummers' play.

And the appropriate venue was outside the Trip to Jerusalem pub, Nottingham ... by tradition, the oldest inn in England."
