Winnie & Warwick’s Magical Menagerie

Winnie the witch and Warwick the wizard are spell casters in training and they’re after every opportunity to practice. They’ve been left in charge of the Grand Masters Magical Menagerie to keep them out of trouble and although they’re fairly sure all of the critters are still there they have a sneaking suspicion that something may have escaped. Mind your heads as their spells zip and zing about the skies and keep an ever watchful eye on their spell book, it holds secrets that even they sometimes aren’t aware of.

Eugene Aram and the Hermit

Knaresborough’s greatest good guy meets the town’s biggest bad guy! A comic encounter that never happened – written in honour of St Robert of Knaresborough’s 800th anniversary.

The Knaresborough Mummers have performed both traditional and original plays in Britain and abroad. This new play, written in honour of St Roberts of Knaresborough’s 800th anniversary (he’s the hermit in the title) features a meeting between two Knaresborough characters who actually lived centuries apart. What would the saint have said to the notorious murderer if they had met? Trust the Mummers to give us a unique and hilarious interpretation! 

Formed in 1974, the Knaresborough Mummers have performed Traditional and self-penned Mummers plays for audiences in Britain and abroad, and raised over £14,000 for local charities with their Christmas Blue Stots play.
