Where and When to see Icknield Way Morris Men

We have a very active programme from early Spring to late Autumn plus various regular events around Christmas each year.  We produce a printed programme early each year and also make the pdf version available by downloading from the web-site. You can sign up for an occasional news update on our web-site. There is a live feed of the latest events on our home page and a full list of all public events is available there too.

Of course these are only our public performances - if you want to join us you will find we do a lot more unconventional things in private!  If you want to hire us for a public or private event the contact details are on our web-site too.

Dance displays

Dance sides will often perform out in public - mostly during the summer months, but sometimes around Winter Solstice, Boxing Day and New Year as well. Look out for all different types of Morris dance, as well as rapper (with flexible swords), Irish dance, and Playford style display teams. Information about where to see the performances will be added to this page as it becomes available; keep checking back!
