Boudicca at the Battle of Pipney HillAt yesterday's Rendham Mummers' The Battle of Pipney Hill Revisited every time the warrior queen arrived on her chariot the band went ♫Da da da da Daaaaah da♫ tickling our memory buds.  It was only on Boudicca's third entrance we realised it was Chariots of Fire.  Passing the bucket after the usual magnificently chaotic show the Mummer's raised £444.86 for Lighthouse Women's Aid.  Next Mummers show for the winter solstice Sunday 22 December on Rendham's green at the junction of Sandy Lane and Chapel Road ... Romani Ite Domum.
