Cartoonist John Geering, famously the artist behind Bananaman was a village resident and more recently Harry Styles from One Direction grew up in the village with his Mother. The village has two public houses: the Drum and Monkey, and the Spinner and Bergamot.
The Comberbach Mummers still perform the village's traditional Soulcaking Play (a form of Mummers Play), which commences on the Eve of All Souls (31 October) and lasts for two weeks. This was restarted in the mid-1980s after a brief lapse and has been performed each year since. The Mummers meet on most Thursday evenings in The Spinner and Bergamot for 'rehearsal'.
