This year the Mysteries will be commemorating Kevin Harper who died recently. Kevin was a stalwart of the Mysteries committee, a real 'can-do' man. He specialised in playing God but also appeared as Napoleon Bonaparte (below), Abel, pub landlords, Viking warriors, workers, soldiers and other hangers-on. He is much missed

The Penkhull Mysteries have been running from 2005-2019, though the idea goes back to the middle ages. We all get together each year to produce a community play on the green by the church and pubs, with a lot of other activities as well: stalls, games, morris and maypole dancers, tug of war etc.

 The Mysteries are very much for local people by local people.  It takes a whole community to make the day happen: last year around two hundred people were actively involved in working on all aspects of the day. If you’d like to be part of this continuing tradition there are lots of opportunities – taking as much or as little time as you are in a position to give.
