Chelmsford Morris is a bunch of people of all ages, who like to continue the English tradition of morris dancing. We take pride in putting on a good performance, and we enjoy ourselves as well.


The men's dances come from the Cotswolds and the areas near the Welsh border, and the women dance clog morris from the north-west of England.

 

We dance around mid-Essex at pubs, festivals and shows, and at weddings and parties. If you would like to book us, do get in touch, but please remember that we need a sizeable area of paved ground - grass and gravel are very bad for knees and ankles!
