Babylon Morris Mummers in Bridport

As well as the dancing, Babylon perform a mummers play.

Above - New Year's Day 2008 Beaminster Town Square, featuring the amazing Babylon Mummers

This is a traditional play featuring a combat between King George and a series of opponents, all of whom are killed. A quack doctor is then summoned who revives the slain. One or more totally unrelated characters then appear and beg for money. Father Christmas gets involved by apparently being the father of all of King George's victims.

This year they will be several performances of their mumming play round the town. More details will visit there website at
