MISCELLANEOUS NOTES ON NOTTINGHAMSHIRE AND DERBYSHIRE FOLK DRAMA RECORDED BY PETER T. MILLINGTON: ARNOLD Notts SK 5845
Col. 16th Feb.1971
Brief note as follows:-
"Recorded on the 16th February 1971 from an unnamed informant at the 'White
Swan,' Pleasley, Notts.
The informant remembered having performed in a play at Arnold in his youth, but
could not recollect any text. The informant was about 50."
[At the time this note was made, I was unaware of non-play Plough Monday
customs, and in retrospect, I think this informant probably remembered a simple
Plough Monday house visiting custom, rather than a play. PTM]
