Highlights from the Keston Wassailing 6th January 2020. Courtesy of our master of ceremonies, David Hicks, "During the dark times of winter, there is a whole new world of ancient English culture to enjoy.

Ravensbourne Mummers perform the ancient folk play at the Red Lion in Bromley on 17 December 2016. Mumming is a traditional form of robust folk drama performed, usually in pubs, around Christmas and New Year. Some say that the play originally represented the triumph of the Sun over darkness at midwinter but we’ve found that performing the play puts it through a process of ad-libs and larking about until it evolves and becomes almost unrecognisable from the original article!
