By The Magic of The Morris, rain fell only between dances, when we were sampling the fine brews in a few of our favourite pubs! A relaxing end to the season, in company with friends - some old, some new.

Sadly, there are no more performances this year. But now is an ideal time for you to try morris yourself! It's fun, and as a beginner you'd get lots of support and encouragement. Just follow this link for more information.
