Boxing Day folk fun at Banningham pub

Members of Kemp's Men, the Norwich-based morris dance side, will be forgetting any festive hangovers in order to keep up a fine old Norfolk Boxing Day tradition.

With thermal underwear and perhaps a flask or two of the strong stuff they will be dancing and presenting an age-old tale outside the Crown pub at Banningham on Wednesday at noon.

For many years Kemp's Men have kept villagers and visitors entertained - not only with a Boxing Day dance display but also their own version of a traditional English mummers' play.

Visitors can expect to see hero St George, the villain of the piece the Turkish Knight, the policeman, the doctor and more in a series of knockabout stunts and comedy situations - updated for the modern day.
