Wantage Mummers, 2009 - “Qui en veut” (Who wants some..)

“Qui en veut” (Who wants some..)

A donation of £1200 was made to
Cancer Research UK

 

With only two days to go there was a certain air of panic among the Mummers (who you will recall are not IWMM) and our raft of alternative plans had got as far as Plan D. However, on the day the old troupers managed to drag themselves out and speak loudly enough so it was Plan A after all.

Weather was again kind and after our usual warm up to a select audience in Faringdon the crowds at Wantage and Childrey were as big as they ever have been. The only damp around seemed to have got into the cartridges as twice Father Christmas had to substitute a bellowed “BANG – BANG” following a technical failure with the props.

Once again the audience was generous and we collected £1000 for Cancer Research.
