Allington Morris

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

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

Thursday nights.

 If you would like to come along and play or give dancing a go, get in

touch through Allingtononline or by contacting Mary McKinlay,

Secretary, Allington Morris email (

special kit needed, just a pair of trainers or comfortable shoes and

most essential, a sense of humour!
