Welcome to the home page of Letchworth Morris
Most of the side, November 2021
We were founded in 1922 and are one of the original six sides (or clubs) who formed the Morris Ring (www.themorrisring.org) in 1934. We are proud to continue the tradition of Morris dancing in the Cotswold style in the Letchworth area.
BREAKING NEWS: At an EGM in November 2021 we unanimously agreed that from then on we would be happy to admit women and girls to practise and dance with us, or to join the musicians if they preferred. This is part of a general recruitment drive, in which we’re trying to lower our average age, and bring new enthusiasm to the side. We’ve already had a couple, Jane and Tim, join us, and hope to see more newcomers soon!
We practise at Wilbury Hall, (behind St Thomas’s church), Bedford Road, Letchworth, on Thursday evenings from 8 – 10 p.m. during the winter – generally from the beginning of October to the end of April. From 1st May we dance out at pubs most Thursday evenings, with occasional fetes, weddings, days of dance and other celebrations at weekends.
Any people interested in joining us, either as dancers or musicians will be warmly welcomed. Ideally have a word with the Bagman first (see contacts page), to check directions and have a quick chat about the Morris generally.
