Morris is an old English folk dance performance form that includes several types of dance from various regions: Cotswold, Northwest, Border, Molly, Longsword, Rapper, and Clog.

We do Border Morris originally from the English border counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire, and Shropshire, adding in our own inventions, plus those we have gleaned from others. High spirits and high energy — “a rude vigour” — typify our Border Morris dancing.

We create lots of interest when we dance at local events and festivals. We also sing and play traditional English music, including old Christmas carols mainly from the South Yorkshire area; and we perform traditional English mummering plays. Mostly, we have a lot of fun together!


Can we share our enjoyment with you?

(Contact our Squire or our web-master for more information,

either to join us, or to have us perform for you.)

“A chance to perform in the street, to show off, to be loud or silly or raucous, to violate normal standards of behavior and not only get away with it but be applauded for it.”   (from Rich Holmes)
