Sompting Tipteerers

The Sompting Tipteerers have been presenting their traditional street play of St George and the Turkish Knight for over 30 years, usually as part of the Christmas and New Year festivities. Be warned it is not for the faint hearted as it involves violence, gratuitous verbal abuse and pyrotechnics of the most alarming nature.

 

The Tipteerers attended the Mummers Unconvention in Bath and Gloucester where we astounded audiences of hundreds, along with 20 other ragbag teams of Mummers from as far away as Spain and the USA.

 

Come and watch the Tipteerers in action, performing their traditional Mummers Play as part of our Boxing Day, New Year's Day  and Wassail stands.
