West Somerset Morris Men are really looking forward to dancing out with our new mixed border morris side, West Somerset Border Morris.
We meet weekly at 8:00pm at Halsway Manor and other village halls in the area. Please check the Practice Night page for more information.

West Somerset Morris Men have been around since 1965, and after 4 years of hard work the side achieved the standard necessary to be accepted into the National Organisation or Morris Ring in 1969.
Morris Dancing goes back many hundreds of years, but it was only in the early 1900’s that a revival started, so that today there are around 200 sides in the Morris Ring in the UK and over 1000 groups world-wide.
Our dancing season commences in May (see programme) and the core of our season involves dancing around the beautiful villages of West Somerset on Thursday evenings. We also support a range of local village fetes and festivals at the weekends.
We are regular participants at the Wessex Folk Festival, held on the last weekend of May and centred around the old port area of Weymouth.
We welcome new members at any time. Please get in touch for more details.
The Morris is part of the West Somerset scene and it is important to continue this old tradition. So if you are interested in Morris either as a dancer or a musician or want to know more about the history of Morris or where we’ll be in 2016 then contact:
