“We are a merry rout, or else a rable, or company, or, by a figure, Chorus, that fore thy dignitie will dance a Morris”(William Shakespeare 1613, Two Noble Kinsmen, Act 3 Scene 5)

The following is a video of us dancing in Evesham in June 2014:

And here is a video of the ladies rehearsing their celebratory 40th anniversary dance in April 2017 – the dance comprises elements of many of the different traditions danced by the ladies during their 40 year history and was choreographed by our Foreman, and founder member, Jackie Gayner.

Mission

Our mission is to:
1. Keep the tradition of Morris Dancing alive.
2. Make others aware of the tradition of Morris Dancing by promoting it wherever we go.
3. Have loads of fun!

      In Brief

We are a morris side based in central Kent, dancing Cotswold Morris (what most people think of as morris with sticks, hankies and bells). Some of the dances are traditional, collected in the early 20th century, but many were written by our members and form our own Headcorn Tradition. Audiences are always welcome to come and watch us at our many stands and events during the year, and new dancers and musicians are even more welcome. Be Bold… Join The Morris!

In the last few years we have danced, played and sung our way across Holland, Estonia, Boston (USA), Hungary, Belgium, the Basque Country, France, and yes, even England! Along with our Hooden Horse, Jason, we have appeared on television with Dennis Waterman and on film with Nicole Kidman, so join the fun!
