Programme

Our 2017 dancing season is summarised below:

14th January (Saturday)    Stroud Wassail

22nd April (Saturday)    Winchcombe Wartime Event

30th April (Sunday)    Upton Folk Festival, dancing from 12 noon in the procession through the town, followed by a spot in the ‘arena’ by the river. Upton is a wonderful event, all the Morris dancing is around the pubs and river side environs and totally free to watch.

1st May (Monday)    The Morris year officially is ‘kicked off’ so to speak at dawn (about 5.20/25) on May Day.  Happenstance dance as the sun rises on Cleeve Hill (park at the golf club and follow your eyes and ears).  We perform at the nearest high and flat-enough-to-dance-on spot!  How long we dance depends on the weather, but it’s an old Morris tradition that everyone is welcome to come and support.
