Brief note as follows:-

"Recorded in July 1971 from R. Wilkinson of Eastwood.

A 'Saint George and Dragon play' was still performed by children in the pubs at Christmas. The play ended with one coming in wearing a top hat and a long coat, and singing a song threatening to curse the ale if no money was given.

The same informant also stated that children also performed a 'Guy Fawkes play' about November the 4th."
