Devil’s Dyke Morris Men

Monday May 2Wednesday August 3

Devil’s Dyke Morris Men mainly perform dances which originated in the Cotswold area. ‘Morris’ generally is used to cover dances with a formal or ritual function, traditionally formed by a small practised set of same-sex dancers, usually male. This contrasted strongly with social dances which were performed in more relaxed circumstances by both sexes.

The Cotswold Morris is characterised by a mixture of dances with either handkerchiefs or sticks. Other forms of dance which come under the heading ‘Morris’ are, for example, Border Morris (English/Welsh borders, blackface), longsword (mainly Yorkshire), rapper (Durham), and clog (Lancashire/Yorkshire).

There will be performances at many local pubs from May to August.
