Stony Stratford Mummers

Stony Stratford Mummers was formed when a group of dedicated folkies decided that they would entertain those in the local hostelries at Christmas time. A group of friends went round the pubs singing Christmas Carols and one year late they decided to perform a Mummers play. It was in the year 1973 that Stony Stratford Mummers was born. Apart from a one year break in the late 1980’s Stony Mummers have performed every year since its inception. Their performance schedule in the winter always starts when the town holds its annual ‘Switching on of the Lights’ celebration which heralds the start of the winter festivities at the end of November or beginning of December.
