Middleton Mummers
Annual Tour of South Craven, Sunday before Christmas Eve and is the 10th year of local performances. Performance mid afternoon at Middleton (Cowling not Ilkley) before performing in the pubs of Cowling, Sutton in Craven, Kildwick and Cross Hills we perform at the bottom of Middleton. All members come from hamlet of Middleton or nearby village of Cowling. We perform a combat play featuring St. George, Turkish Knight, Beelzebub, Turkish Knight’s ‘Relation’ and the Doctor. Each year the part of the Turkish Knight's ‘Relation’ features a famous celebrity involved in an important issue of the day. Beelzebub role is to reflect current important news items. This is to give relevance for a modern audience and involves script revision each year. This year we performed at The bay Horse Cowling, Bay Horse Sutton, King’s Arms Sutton, The White Lion Kildwick and finished off at the Old White Bear in Crosshills.

We do it for fun and we don't collect, it's just to give joy to others and celebrate the return of the light after a long winter. Everyone who has seen it has had a good laugh.The more audience participation the better. We have a great time and the Landlady and Landlord at the King's Arms regard the start of their Christmas from when we arrive. They are great hosts.
