About Blackmore Morris

Blackmore Morris dance Cotswold Morris, mostly around our home area, which is broadly the triangle between Brentwood, Ongar and Chelmsford in Essex.

We dance out at pubs around Essex on Wednesday evenings from May to September and we often dance at weekends too. Please come and watch us when we're out dancing - our 2017 season is now over, but you can see where we went here: Where to see Blackmore Morris...

Blackmore also like to venture further afield. After our first day-trip to Boulogne in 1986 our foreign visits in recent years have included France, Poland, Italy, Germany, Latvia, Slovenia, Austria, and Slovakia. In 2016 we visited Estonia, where we divided our time between the island of Saaremaa and the capital, Tallinn. We had a very successful trip in September 2017 to Trebinje in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Dubrovnik in Croatia, you can see some photos here: Photo Gallery...

We do get quite booked up, but if you are staging an event locally and you would like a Morris display, please send an email to blackmoremorris@gmail.com... and we'll see what we can do.

We would love to receive copies of any photos you may have taken of us over the years, so please send an email to blackmoremorris@gmail.com... to let us know what you've got. We're especially interested in more pictures from the early years for our Archive.

Blackmore Morris are keeping the traditions alive because they enjoy it. Why not come and try them out? The practice season starts around the end of September. You will be made very welcome; you can find out more here Introducing Blackmore Morris...
