News Clipping: Babylon Mummers are keeping the festive spirit alive

There are lots of events planned for the week after Christmas to help keep the festive spirit alive. West Dorset’s Babylon Mummers will be bringing a taste of traditional Yule to Beaminster and the surrounding villages on New Year’s Day.

The Babylonians will be dancing and mumming with friends from Red Stags Morris and Treacle Eater Clog and you can catch their wonderful show at Beaminster Square (11am), Broadwindsor Square (noon) and The Hare and Hounds at Waytown at 1pm.

The Quangle Wangle Choir will be in fine voice on Monday, December 27, when they give their annual post-Christmas concert in the United Church, South Street, Dorchester at 7.30pm.

Also on Monday, you can enjoy Abeng music, drumming, dancing and singing with Chief Nana Kofi Simba Leo in Fordington Church Hall, Fordington in Dorchester.

The session starts at 7pm and costs £10 from 07979 885685.
