Trying to fit five Mumming Tours in during the lead in to Christmas is always a bit difficult, and leads to one of the tours being performed, out of necessity, post Christmas. So, we visited the Vivian Arms, the Village Inn, Black Boy and the Railway in Sgetti, and Cila on the Thursday evening. There were quite a few people about, especially in the Vivs, which required precise, controlled fighting by King George and Valiant Knight. There was good banter in the Village Inn, and the lads in the Black Boy kept us on our toes. The Railway was holding a quiz so we had to wait a minute or two for that to finish which was not a problem.
Our Doctor for this tour was Jonathan Baker, one time member of Sweyn's Ey Morris, but now living in The Midlands. He delivered his part with a suitable degree of ad lib lines that had us chuckling, especially the bit about his travels being achieved by ‘rail replacement bus service’!
Siân provided a good supply of seasonal tunes on her fiddle after each performance, which enhanced things. Big thanks to all the landlords and ladies who allowed us to perform and to all who watched and contributed to our RNLI buckets
Here are some photos (mostly taken by Alison) of our last Tour of 2022 which was really good fun!
