A.E.Green Collection (1966, C.Simons)

Clifford Simons (Inf.)
*New Year Jubilees Play from Selston, Notts.
A.E.Green Collection, Col. 5th Feb.1966, Accession No.476, Vol.NIV

*Text fragments of a New Year from Selston, Notts., performed by 17- to 18-year old church lads called Jubilees before 1917. Characters: Bullguy, St. George, Dragon(?), and Doctor.

The name "Jubilees" may be a misinderstanding on the part of the collector - being derived from lines that elsewhere have the words "jovial actors", "juveniles", etc.
