Mummers Play at Cerne Abbas

Mummers' plays have been performed in England since the late 1700s and most Dorset villages would have had their own play. It is very likely that there was a play in Cerne Abbas but, unfortunately, all traces of it have been lost, so Wessex Morris have "imported" a play from Quidhampton, near Salisbury. Nevertheless, since their play has been performed regularly in Cerne Abbas for over 30 years it has come part of Cerne Abbas' Christmas tradition.
