Formed in 2021, in between COVID lockdowns. Our dances come from a few traditions; predominantly from the Cotswold village of Adderbury (the Adderbury Tradition) and Border Morris, from the England/ Wales borders. Morris dancing can be traced in England back to the 14th Century; there are many different traditions, tunes, styles and outfits.
We aim to dance out where and when we can, and are available for events as well. Contact us for more information.
We have several dancers and musicians, but are welcoming of anyone who wants to join us as dancers, musicians or both! You don't have to be English, or have any dancing experience, just a willingness to learn and give it a go! You don't need a partner either.
Come along and see what it is all about, or contact us for more information on one of the methods below!
