The performances start at the Museum + Gallery at 11.30am followed by the White Hart Hotel at 12.20pm, the West Door of the Abbey at 1pm, the Fighting Cocks at 1.50pm and finally the Clock Tower at 2.40pm.

Any funds raised from the performances will be donated to charity.

According to the programme, the show features "signs of conflict, life, death and resurrection, plus some awful jokes but in the best possible taste".

The play was first performed in 1967 and is essentially the same today. The cast, however, has changed a bit over the years and members of the original audience now bring their grandchildren.

Each performance is a little different as the Mummers like to include topical items and interact with the public.
