Reply from the Royal Tiger Inn, Somercotes, Derbys., to a questionnaire sent to pubs in the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire border district in 1973. The pub was visited by carol singers who were children and/or Brownies. A play was also performed in December 1972, but the local name for the play was not known. Mrs. Bates also noted "A few young boys playing musical instruments." "...we don't get much traditional entertainment in these parts."
