2014 finished a great year for ESMM with our traditional Boxing Day tour. We danced and performed for the first time a Mummers play to enthusiastic audiences at three of our favourite pubs near Caterham and in Godstone.  Here are some photos. There are more photos in a gallery on the 2014 page, together with Videos on the website.

ESMM Tour of Kent & East Sussex 2014

The bank holiday weekend saw the 56th Tour of Kent & East Sussex, as usual with our good friends Greensleeves MM. This year we also welcomed Helmond MM from the Netherlands.

The weekend was a hugely enjoyable one for all concerned with the highlight being the unexpected encounter with a wedding party and the enthusiastic involvement of the Bride in Brighton Camp. (See photo below)
