DetailsExeter Morris Men becomes Exeter Morris. In what will be the beginning of a new chapter for us, Exeter Morris is pleased to announce we intend to fully embrace the change to becoming a mixed side, the first in Exeter, and welcome new members, both men and women. Dancers and musicians, novices and experienced, young and old, we will be delighted for any new member to join us when practice starts again in early October. We practice at Ide Memorial Hall most Thursdays from October to April. The oldest established side in Devon, Exeter Morris were formed in 1951 and are members of the Morris Ring of England. The form of dance that Exeter Morris perform is known as Cotswold Morris. The side has a repertoire dances, mostly from the villages in the Cotswolds region of England such as Adderbury, Bledington, Ilmington and Lichfield. Morris dancing is great fun, good exercise and gets you to some of the best pubs in Devon! You too could soon be helping to keep alive one of England’s oldest traditions for future generations to enjoy. But be warned, this could be a life changing decision – a wonderful one.
