The men's side In the summer Chelmsford Men perform Cotswold morris dances, that is, some of those traditionally danced in villages of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. Each village had its own style and dance figures, in a 'tradition' of its own. In addition we dance some from the Lichfield tradition, and like many morris sides, we also include traditional-style dances composed more recently.
