Keeping the Morris tradition alive (men behaving badly with hankies, sticks, bells and baldrics)

Not all elderly!
During the summer months we dance Cotswold Morris and the occasional dance from other traditions. You can find us in some unspoiled corner of the Chilterns near the borders of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, in close proximity to a pub. We also go on trips, so you may even be lucky enough to stumble upon us somewhere else in England... or even abroad! But usually in close proximity to a pub. We're also well known for cracking a tune or two in the bar afterwards...

*This film, commissioned by the ICA as part of the Dance School event explores the comparisons between traditional British Morris dancing and contemporary Rave dancing. Stick with it - it includes the incomparable philosophy of our very own Badger near the beginning and again near the end!

On Bank Holiday Monday, 4th May, we will be dancing at Aldbury Village Fete, one of the nicest village fetes in England!

Our Village
Our home village, Aldbury, lies not far from Tring in the far North-West of Hertfordshire, very near the Bucks border (and quite close to Bedfordshire, too). The village stands at the foot of the Chiltern hills, with the magnificent woods of Ashridge climbing above. It remains very picturesque, centred around its pond and green, the latter indulgently equipped with whipping post and stocks. >>click here for a map.
