Headcorn Morris Windmill LogoHeadcorn Morris

“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)


This is Jason, our Hooden Horse, who accompanies us on most
of our adventures – including our trip to London to
celebrate May Day 2018


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!

However, we are unable to continue beyond the 2022 season:

Headcorn Morris’ last stand will be at Broadstairs on Sunday 7th August.

As you are aware, Headcorn Morris was first established over 40 years ago. Over the past 10 years or so, it has become more difficult to attract new and young blood.  Our dancers and musicians are getting older and, with the recent Covid lockdowns etc, we have decided that the  time has come to finish up. The last stand will be at Broadstairs on Sunday 7th August.

We are hoping that as many of our past members and friends will join us and help to send the side into liquidation (beer, cider, wine etc) happy!!

If you would like to join us for any of our other stands in 2022, you would be most welcome:

Thursday 19th May, 8pm, Three Mariners, Rainham with Wolfs Head and Vixen Morris and The 7 Champions Molly Dancers

Thursday 7th July, West End Tavern, with Loose Women, from 7.30/8.00pm

Sunday 17th July Britannia Inn, Dungeness with Romney Marsh – times to be confirmed

      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 past 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!
