About Colchester Morris Men

The Colchester Morris Men were founded in 1926, disbanded during World War II, re-established in 1953, and have remained active ever since.  We have been members of  The Morris Ring since 1935.  There are many traditions of Morris dancing throughout the country, and our repertoire is mainly Cotswold Morris. You can learn more about other types of dancing in About Morris.

Our summer season often starts with a dancing tour of Colchester town centre and then we dance regularly on Friday evenings in Colchester and the surrounding villages – usually at a pub.  The shows normally last for about 30-45 minutes. It is a long-standing tradition that we also put on a show for Boxing Day, where we attract large crowds eager to take the air after the excesses of Christmas Day!  We accept a limited number of bookings (for a modest fee), but we get booked up early so speak to us in plenty of time.  During the winter months we regularly practise on Friday evenings.

All our dancing is accompanied by traditional instruments, including accordion, pipe and tabor, melodeon and whistle.

We are always happy to see new member, so if you are interested please contact our Recruitment Officer, Bagman or Squire for more details

For details of where we are performing see our programme, or look in the local  press.
