1982    ABOUT US       2017

 

Sarum Morris was formed in 1982. We are named after Sarum the Roman settlement which, through the centuries, has grown and evolved into the present day beautiful City of Salisbury.

Sarum Morris is a mixed Cotswold Morris side comprising of both men and women dancers and musicians. The dances that we perform are from the Cotswold villages of Bampton, in Oxfordshire, Ilmington in Warwickshire and Oddington in Gloucestershire, as performed and collected over 100 years ago. During the spring and summer we dance out at folk festivals, country fairs, village fetes, local pubs, Morris ale weekends and days of dance in and around Salisbury and a little further a field in Southern England.

 

                                                                    We have also danced in Canada, Ireland, France and Sweden.

During the winter months, between September and Easter we practice every Thursday evening from 8.00pm until 10.00pm at Salisbury Rugby Football Clubhouse, Castle Road, Salisbury. It is during the winter months we especially welcome anyone who is curious or interested in Morris to join us and learn about the passion that is Morris Dancing. We are always keen to welcome new members, in whatever role, as dancer, musician, or just a curious spectator.
