George from Nuthall rang the phone-in. Some 50 years previously they used to do a play around Christmas time in the Brinsley and Underwood area. They called themselves guisers. The play included St. George of England and Slasher who used to fight. There was a song very similar to Good Master and Good Mistress sung earlier by IJ. He used to play Beelzebub when he was 5 or 6 years of age. Adults taught them the play but only children took part.They used to earn over one pound each in 2 or 3 evenings which used to pay for all their Christmas presents.
