WE are a group of men and women, who perform traditional morris dances at village fetes, local events, and morris days of dance around the country.

We have a number of musicians playing accordion, melodeon, concertinas and fiddle, ranging from experts to near-beginners.

We started practising in Wilmslow in 1982, moved to Lymm in 1994, and have been based in Moore since 1996.

We have always attracted dancers from all over north Cheshire, and currently have members from as far away as Bolton, and Bangor in North Wales as well as all the locals.

We used to run a children’s side and the teenagers have grown up to be excellent dancers.

Most of them have now left home, but still come back to perform with us when they are in the area.

We revived the Halton Souling play in 2000, from a version published in 1886, and have been performing it every year since in the local villages, collecting donations for Halton Haven Hospice.

The play was known to be performed in the past, and it is one of a number of similar plays performed in Cheshire around the time of All Souls’ Day.

It features a fight between knight George and the Turkish champion, with a comic intervention by a quack doctor, ending with an appearance of the poor old horse.

We would like to welcome new members on our side.

We meet on Tuesdays from 8pm to10pm, from September to May in the Milner Institute in Moore.

We dance out at local pubs on most Tuesday evenings during June, July and August, often with other local sides.
