Morris Sides

Performing Saturday 17th

11am-3pm at various spots in the city

Lassington Oak

Lassington Oak Morris were formed in 1977 by a group of dancers from the Gloucester & Stroud area. They were renowned not only for their dancing, but as fine musicians and singers. In many ways this start was reminiscent of the village and family traditions of early Morris Sides.

The side owes its name to an old oak tree to be found near the centre of Lassington Wood at Highnam, Gloucestershire. Unfortunately the old oak has been lying on its side for many a year. When standing it was considered one of the great trees of England.

We dance in the Cotswold Tradition, performing dances from a variety of villages including Bampton, Bledington, Adderbury and Fieldtown. Morris Dancing should be an energetic & dynamic. We are keen to show anyone who is watching that what we do is not only a living part of the traditional heritage of the country, but also, a good fun tradition to be involved in.

Lassington Oak Morris are members of the Morris Ring, an organisation which works to promote, preserve, and maintain the tradition of Morris Dancing.

 

We dance out on Wednesday nights in the summer and practise in the winter at Highnam Community Centre every Wednesday from 8pm

Give Martyn a call on 07766490735 if you would like some encouragement to have a go

Or email us:

We are available to perform at select gatherings at extortionate rates by negotiation.

Appleyard Dancers

Appleyard Dancers are a group of female dancers who perform a range of traditional folk and morris style dances to live music.
The group formed over 30 years ago, and are based in Worcestershire near Upton upon Severn.
We are keen to welcome new members at all times.
Check out the website www.appleyardfolk.co.uk

Stroud Morris

Stroud Morris bring you dances hewn from the Cotswold limestone of the Five Valleys. We dance in a kaleidoscope of colour representing our white sheep, green hills and the red cloth made in Stroud for the soldiers of King George. A ladies’ side based in Stroud, Gloucestershire, we have danced all
over the UK in the last 30 years but can’t wait to dance for you in at the Gloucester Folk Trail.

Winterbourn Down Border

Winterbourn Down Border Morris is a dance side for men and women based just north-east of Bristol, UK. We practise in All Saints Church Hall, Winterbourne Down on Monday nights starting at 8.15. Summer evenings see us out and about, dancing at local pubs. Every Boxing Day the Mummers and Morris dancers perform around the village and collect money in aid of charity.

Winterbourn Down Border Morris dancers use music which is suited to their step-hop style, namely traditional hornpipes, jigs and polkas, although there are times when these are adapted to match a particular dance. The dances themselves are put together using 3 or 4 different ‘verses’ separated by a common ‘chorus’. All of the dancers are involved in their creation and refinement. In most dances the dancers carry long sticks which are used in the ‘choruses’ to emphasise the rhythm of the music by being clashed against one another or by hitting the ground. Bells are worn on legs, arms and clothing to help define the rhythm and pace of the proceedings, and they give off a cheery jingling sound. Contact

England's Glory

England’s Glory were formed in 1972, first dancing out in 1973 and are therefore one of the longest established ladies morris sides in the world.

Highlights of our 45+ years of continuous dancing have included being the very first ladies side ever to appear at Sidmouth International Folk Festival, and also the first ladies side to be officially invited to perform in the arena (1978). We were also the first ladies morris side to appear on television (Pebble Mill at One) and we have toured overseas – Sweden, Guernsey, and Finland, as well as becoming a permanent fixture at many of the major UK Folk Festivals.

We are named after the historic brand of matches manufactured in Gloucester for about 100 years by the Moreland family.

We are able to resume our practise sessions on Monday 10th January at 8pm prompt. We meet at Innsworth Infant School Luke Lane, Innsworth GL3 1HJ. New dancers are most welcome – however we do ask that you do a lateral flow test before attending. Wear comfortable clothes, bring some water to drink and come and have some fun! If you need any more information please email us at

Wimberry Clog

We are traditional Step Clog Dancers based in the Forest of Dean.

Wimberry Clog normally meet every Thursday, alternating mornings and evenings, at the Pludds Village Hall, Gloucestershire, GL17 9UQ.

New members are always very welcome.

If you would like more information, please email us at

Gloucestershire Morris

Gloucestershire Morris (formerly Gloucestershire Morris Men) moved from Miserden in January 2021 and at the same time welcomed ladies to join the side. We are a Cotswold Morris side which first started in the1930s as Cheltenham Morris.

Our dances are from the Gloucestershire traditions Oddington, Bledington, Sherborne as well as Adderbury, Fieldtown, Bampton.
We practice at St Mary’s church next to the Pelican Inn in Gloucester on Tuesday nights from 7.45pm till 9.45pm before retiring to the Pelican for music and song.
We also perform tge Gloucestershire Mumming play and City of Gloucester play at the Cathedral on st Stephens day.
Contact Bagman Mike Boag on 01242 244701 or Squire Mike Thomas 07948529394. New dancers will receive a warm welcome.

Forest of Dean Morris

The Forest of Dean Morris Men was originally formed, as a men only side, in 1968. They dance out on summer Wednesday evenings at pubs in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley areas. The FODM dance mostly traditional Cotswold dances, and some unique dances from the Forest. On the second weekend in June the Forest side hosts other Morris sides from across the country.  This family friendly event has been held for over 40 years. A number of coaches take the colourful and varied sides to dance, and drink, at several pubs throughout the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. They have performed at many different locations in England and Wales, also in Germany and France.

In September 2017 the side took a forward looking decision to welcome women dancers and become a mixed side, re-naming as Forest of Dean Morris.  They welcomed 2018, their 50th anniversary year, re-invigorated with the influx of over 10 new dancers and musicians.

Usually Morris sides wear white shirts crossed with coloured baldricks (sashes) and white trousers or black breeches.  In the Forest of Dean, however, the dancers have traditionally worn “rag jackets”.  The current Forest of Dean Morris’ costume is based on the Ruardean kit of the 1880’s. One theory for the wearing of Rag Jackets is that it represents the leaves of the Forest.

In August 2021, after an 18 month lay-off, due to Covid pandemic restrictions, Forest of Dean Morris resumed their Wednesday evening dance-outs. With the winter practice season now in full swing old dances are being re-learnt and new ones developed. Practice takes place on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at Soudley Village Hall. If you are interested in joining look at our Facebook page for latest information or email

 

The Tattered Court

A Cheltenham-based mixed Border Morris side, founded in January 2016.

But just what is Border Morris? There’s no hankies (that’s Cotswold), but rather we dance with big sticks, rag jackets, and lots of gusto! The tradition originally comes from the Welsh Borders, but had mostly died out until it was revived at the end of the 20th century. Now, there are many Border sides around the country, some of whom re-enact traditional dances, some who perform modern dances, and many who do a bit of both. We’re very much at the modern end of the spectrum, and like to write our own dances that are fun to dance and awesome to watch!

We’re always looking for new members, dancers or musicians (or both). Normally we require members to be over eighteen, but younger dancers may well be possible by arrangement. Previous dancing experience doesn’t matter, just willingness to have a go!

Wild Oats

Wild Oats is a mixed side (boys and girls of any age) and always welcomes additional members {Dancers and musicians}. Young folks {under 16} will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. Dancers will receive plenty of tuition in our freindly group, Musicians often play by ear or we can provide sheet music (if you play but don’t want to perform in public we also need practice musicians.).
Unless we are out dancing, practice is on Mondays 7.30 – 9.00pm
at Drybrook Rugby Club. GL17 9EU

Please check the dancing calendar. And please feel free to dig a little deeper by visiting our other pages.

Moonlight Morris

We are a group of friends who dance in the border style, in tatters of silver and blue with stars and moons to reflect our name, Moonlight Morris. We have a couple of talented musicians who enable us to perform both self-penned dances and ones we have adapted to our own style, in a lively and energetic way. You can see more about Moonlight Morris on our Facebook page: Moonlight Morris | Facebook

Miserden Morris

Miserden Morris (Formerly Gloucestershire Mixed Morris) was established in October 2016 by a few members of the Gloucestershire Morris Men and some enthusiastic new recruits!

This side is a mixed side, meaning that we have male and female dancers. We dance in the Cotswold tradition with dances from Gloucestershire, we do stick dances, hanky dances and corner dances – with dances from the villages of Oddington, Sherborne, Bledington & Longborough!

We practice on Tuesdays Stroud Old Town Hall 19:30-21:30.

For more information on how to join, visit the ‘Join Us‘ section of our website– you’re very welcome to join us at a practice for a no-obligation taster!

Ragged and Old Morris

Ragged and Old Morris is a mixed side performing newly created dances in the Cotswold style. The side has been established for 30 years and is based around the five valleys of Stroud in Gloucestershire. In addition to Morris dancing we perform Step Clog, and Mumming plays at Christmas.

We practice most weeks at the village hall in Bussage during the Winter and in Summer at local pubs often with other sides. We have bookings at festivals, countryside events, village fetes and parties. A small selection of our recent photos can be seen on the Gallery Page.

Our regular practice night is Wednesday and new members, dancers and musicians are always welcome whether beginners or experienced.
