Welcome to our website. Leicester Morrismen are a group of ordinary guys of varied ages and backgrounds,who share a love of the Morris and like having fun!
Morris Dancing has been part of English life for at least six hundred years and there is continuing argument as to its origins and age and while it was unique to England there are clear similarities to traditional dances from elsewhere.
Leicester Morrismen are currently following HM Government advice and have suspended practices until it is safe and sensible to resume.
The majority of our commitments for Summer events have been cancelled and we have frozen our programme of Wednesday evening tours until the immediate danger is over, at which time we will reassess our programme.
We are missing our practices and the comradeship of or fellow dancers. We will certainly miss the immediate opportunity to entertain and interact with our audiences, and surprise surprise, we will miss the opportunities to have a pint of good beer in local pubs.
We all look forward to the post-virus future.
