Newcomers of all ages are always made welcome, as long as you're male and over 16. You can come along with no prior experience, and no commitment, so why not give it a whirl? We have members from a 20 mile radius around York from a wide variety of professions and ages.
We don't charge any fees and we supply the specialist kit items of bells, baldric, and sticks.
We practice on most Monday evenings between mid October and mid May in the scout hut on Bad Bargain Lane, Heworth, York, YO31 0QZ between 8:30 and 10pm. After practice we head for a local hostelry, the Waggon and Horses in Lawrence Street, to socialise and rehydrate.
We are one of the most experienced and entertaining morris dance teams in York and North Yorkshire with over 40 years of delighting our audiences with displays of traditional morris dancing and Yorkshire longsword dances. Morris dancing is one of the best hobbies for keeping fit and making new friends. The morris dance teams all over Yorkshire and the world bring joy to all who watch morris dancing and longsword dancing.
