Programme 2017

This list gives you some idea of the activities of the side during the summer, but Morris is a very sociable pastime, and there are many other events which we attend or organise with other morris sides – men’s, women’s and mixed. These occur throughout the year, and include teaching weekends for a specific style of dance, get-togethers with other sides for evenings of dancing, beer and food, and national and international events over weekends with tours of local pubs, displays in town and city centres and formal feasts.
