Wantage Mummers

Mumming is a ritual play that is well over a thousand years old. Whilst it is traditionally associated with the Christmas period, it is said to be linked with pagan rites showing the triumph of life over death.

The Wantage Mummers perform their play on Boxing Day (December 26th) outside of The Bear Hotel in Wantage.

The Wantage Mummers raise money for charity during their performance.
