Red Leicester return!
Leicester Morrismen (aka Red Leicester in the winter months, performing Border Morris dances) were not be able to perform at The Griffin Inn, Swithland, on Boxing Day last year for the first time in nearly forty years. We return this year on this year on Sunday 26th December – the traditional Boxing Day. We will be dancing Border style Morris as well as performing our Sproxton Wooing Play.
We will again be collecting for Rainbows Children’s Hospice hoping to beat our previous record of £400 raised through a JustGiving page for our virtual effort last year.
To whet your appitite here as a few links to YouTube videos of some of our past appearances as Red Leicester:
