(Potterne Christmas Boys)

Who are we?

Guardians of the traditional Potterne Mummers Play, we tour the pubs round the Devizes area in the week before Christmas, to present our version of the traditional folk play, and collect a few quid for local charities and the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

Our usual Christmas tour around Devizes finishes on Christmas Eve at the George and Dragon, Potterne.


In 2020 the Mummers' Christmas activities were unfortunately curtailed due to COVID-19, so funds for their charities are rather thin.

We have therefore set up a crowdfunding page to try and raise some money. There has already been £110 pledged, but that's only 10% of what we usually collect.
Any assistance here would be most welcome.

The 2020 Potterne Mummers' Video

This is the Potterne Christmas Boys' 2020 video. Due to Covid19 the team were unable to perform their annual play of 48 years' standing to our regular pubs and venues and therefore are not able to raise the usual £1000+ for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance and other charities. If you can, please follow the link in the box on the left to leave up a tip for our efforts.
It's our first venture into Video editing so please excuse the not-so-slick bits. We'll get better! Have a great New Year and we hope to see you in person, sometime, later on. Thanks to all the Potterne Mummers new and old for your efforts.
Video created, narrated and edited by Bob Berry, Disorganiser of the Potterne Christmas Boys. CHEERS!
