Leicester Morris

Welcome to the website of Leicester Morris. We are a group of ordinary people of varied ages and backgrounds, who share a love of the Morris and like having fun.

Why do we Morris Dance?

People join Morris groups for many reasons. Morris Dancing is a very social activity, it helps to keep you fit, it entertains (or irritates) the public, it keeps the tradition alive and, most importantly, it is fun. If you would like to give it a go we welcome new members so if you would like to join the fun and try this lovely traditional pastime, just come along. Male, female, young * or old, potential dancer or musician, all welcome! You have nothing to lose – and we’ll even buy you a drink after the session.  [* Please note. Under 18s must bring an adult along.]

Musicians: As long as you can play an instrument (that can be played outdoors whatever the weather) we can train you in the skills needed to accompany the Morris.

Dancers: All you need is basic fitness, commitment and a pair of comfy shoes.We were all beginners once so don’t be shy!
