Exmoor Carols and Mummers Plays 2006-7

(Scroll down for Mummers dates)
The 'Exmoor Carolers' consisting of Rupert, Tony, John, Martyn Babb, Geoff Hocking, Anne Piper, Alison Casey, Hilary Bix, Jan Robertson, and Cherie Barnett will 'Hit the road' as from 1st December this year. We have bookings at :-
  • St Calixtus church, West Down on the 8th December,
  • Halsway Manor at Crowcombe, on 10th December
  • St Margarets, Northam on 15th December.
Hopefully the evening at each venue will start at around 7.30 (ish) you will need to book though the following contacts:
  • St Calixtus will be June Devlin on (01271) 863258 or Ann Lewis on (01271) 865405
  • St Margarets will be Gillian Anstis on (01237) 475585
We have been rehearsing hard and reviving some very old Christmas carols that have quite possibly, not not been sung for many years. There are far too many to learn all at once but we are making really good headway with six or seven of them with Rupert as our musical director !
