Alan Young first started mummering when he was eight years old. He's almost 79 now, and he's still mummering. Alan's missed only one Christmas, and that was the year he was in hospital with a broken leg.
Alan can remember when mummers were so numerous in Twillingate, you'd have to wait to get in a house...wait until the first batch of mummers had left. Back then, people mummered throughout the whole Christmas season...from Boxing day, till Old Christmas day.
It's a treasured tradition Alan refuses to get go of....a tradition he still keeps alive in Twillingate. For the pure love of it.
Alan Young is the undisputed mummer man. One of Twillingate's greatest Christmas gifts.
