Mon 28 May Morris Dancing on Bank Holiday Monday


The King's Morris was formed in 1978. We are a revival side; like most modern teams we perform Cotswold Morris dances from many traditions across middle england.

The King's Morris present dancing tours in North-West Norfolk on bank holidays, and on some Friday evenings in Summer we dance outside local village pubs. On the second Sunday in September we invite several other dance teams to join us for massed Morris in King's Lynn (as part of Heritage Open Day). Like many other teams we perform on Boxing Day to mark the "re-discovery" of Morris dancing in 1899 by the folklorist Cecil Sharp. And we take great pride in presenting the traditional King's Lynn May Garland on May Day.

The dancers outfits consist of white shirts and trousers, and light grey top hats. Their baldrics, bellpads and hat ribbons are in the King's Lynn town colours of blue and yellow.
