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...

>>Morris v Rave*
*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!

What's Happening Next?
Like Morris sides throughout the land, we will be welcoming the sunrise on 1st May. Join us dancing by the pond in Aldbury at 6.30am as the sun rises over the hill.

We will also be dancing at the excellent Aldbury May Fair on Bank Holiday Monday 5th May.

Logically, this is likely to be Aldbury

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.
