Newbold on Avon is situated north of Rugby and the text for this play was published in 1899 in the journal of the folk lore society. Revived by the Coventry Mummers in 1976, the play was performed every year at both private and public houses from that year apart from during the lockdown!
The Churchfitters is a folk group like no other. A double bass made out of scrap metal. Heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw. Foot-stomping fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock rhythms. Their “Christmas Cracker” show is a mouthwatering selection of traditional and original festive season songs which will see Christmas in with a bang, a paper hat-full of surprises, novelties – and some terrible jokes too!
Stoneleigh village lies between Coventry and Leamington Spa on the B4109. The Stoneleigh Play was first published in 1926 by Mary Dormer Harris, a prominent local historian and former village resident. She collected the play from a man who played the part of the Doctor. Revived by the Coventry Mummers in 1975, this year marks the 49th year of its revival.

In January, we hosted their first visit to Temperance. The combination of great stories, great ballads and superb musicians in our intimate basement venue made for an extraordinary evening. We just had to do it again. Expect more gruesome tales, some wonderful fiddle, harmonica and hurdy gurdy playing. This will be another magical evening.
Tonight, story-teller Jason Buck introduces more execution ballads and other cheery tunes from days gone by. These were songs that detailed the execution of a prisoner or criminals. Very popular from the 16th Century, they often described graphic violence and the gruesome deaths of the subject in a way to educate others about the potential consequences of committing crime. They were mostly sung to the tune of popular songs. `This was a popular way of spreading stories as many people then were illiterate. The prisoner was invariably pleased to hear that they were writing a song in celebration of their life. This was somewhat diminished when they were told that it was an execution ballad.
Strictly not for the faint-hearted. Jason will tell their stories. Eleanor Servanté and Oliver Cross will perform the ballads. This will be a night to remember. To remember the deaths of lost souls. Be warned.
Oliver Cross is a folk singer, harmonica and hurdy gurdy player. He was born in Cambridge and moved to Preston in 2019. He is immersed in the folk lore and song of the region and is enjoying researching local tunes and ballads. His main area of interest is songs relating to the area’s rich industrial heritage, execution ballads and songs of transportation.
Eleanor Servanté grew up in a small Cumbrian village on the Solway Firth and has been singing and playing folk music in local pubs since she was a child. She combines her love of history and researching ballads, to perform songs from the nineteenth century and beyond, in line with her historical interest.
