We agreed in November last year to admit women to the side, and have already had one couple join us. We practise weekly on Thursdays, 8-10 p.m. at Wilbury Hall, (behind St Thomas’s church), Bedford Road, Letchworth from October to April, then dance out in the summer.
All new recruits are welcome, as dancers or musicians, men or women, and there’s no cost until you’re invited to join and get the kit.
We don’t require any previous experience, and most of our members joined as complete beginners. We don’t judge, just try to teach and guide people through the various hand and foot movements. It’s very satisfying for all of us when a new recruit becomes proficient enough to join in!
We hope to run a short series of workshops specifically for beginners in the early part of 2022. We’ll publicise this as soon as we have finalised the details.
Ring Andrew, our Bagman (secretary) first (see the Contact page), to have a chat about the venue and about the Morris generally.
We look forward to meeting you!
