Stour Valley Mummers 20:00 Clare, The Globe
[This year we are presenting the first performance of our own play, "The Martyrdom of St Edmund", with its strong links to our home county and brewer. It contains most of the expected features of a traditional play, with death and resurrection at its heart. Like most, it is historically inaccurate, but it should be fun.]
