We are an inclusive mixed sex side that doesn’t tolerate harassment, if you have some interest, enthusiastic or cheerfulish about Morris dancing get in touch 🙂 .
You don’t need experience as we teach the routines.
We are happy to add to our merry band of musicians. Do you play an instrument? Fiddle, melodeon, guitar, trombone, spoons? Can you play for a jolly group of dancers who try not to take themselves too seriously? We’d love to hear from you and we can offer you a warm welcome and maybe even a coffee and biscuit.
You don’t need to be competent at the tunes and can learn as you go but if your profecient that’s great too. We do run some introductary lessons from time to time and we have sheet music available. See the kit page for some photos.
Musicians: Paul on 07714 699711 or Ian on 01206 577222.

Watching us at a Dance Out could be a good way to see what we are like and have a chat. We’d love to see you!
Dancers and musicians do pay subs of £15 twice a year. It mostly covers expenses (insurance, practice venue hire, equipement etc ) and we maintaine a small float. You can try for free before deciding to commit to this lunacy.
We pay our own transport, accomidation, instument and kit costs. Most kit is fairly cheap except for clogs. We have a small stock of clogs and would usually want £20 ish contrinution for them. If you’re unlucky and don’t find a pair to fit a hand made pair can cost £160 plus and mean 2 trips up north. You could alternatively be lucky get some of ebay or simlair. We do not insist on people having clogs to dance out.
