Allington Morris is a small, enthusiastic village side. The side was formed in
1988 by members of the then Gala committee as an added attraction for
Allington Gala. We were able to put together two dances for the event
under the tuition of one of our members who had been a member of a
Morris side in his youth. Much to our astonishment we received an
invitation to dance for another village fete and decided we should
perhaps take this Morris lark a little more seriously. Members have
moved on or retired since then, but we remain a social side, very
much centred in the village, practising at the Village Hall and
gathering afterwards at the Welby Arms.
Our dancing season starts traditionally on May 1st outside the Welby, and
we enjoy dancing out with other sides over the summer, at festivals,
local events and pubs around the area. We are an Open Morris (mixed)
Side and our dances are from the Cotswold traditions.
If you are interested in booking us for an event, you can contact us
through Allingtononline or contact Mary McKinlay, Sec, Allington
Morris, email email@example.com
New dancers and musicians are always welcome, with or without experience.
We practise on Thursday nights 8.00 to 9.30 in the Village Hall on
Side Street and our practice season runs from September to the end of
April. After that you will find us dancing out at local pubs on
