West Somerset Morris

Cotswold and Border Morris

West Somerset Morris Men are a long established and well respected morris side dancing Cotswold and traditional Border Morris.


As longstanding members of The Morris Ring, we are regular attendees of Ring meetings,'Days of dance' and Ales.


Halsway Manor has long been the spiritual home of Folk Dance in the West Country as well as being the home of West Somerset Morris Men (WSMM) since their formation.


In 2015 WSMM decided to use its experience and influence in the area to start a mixed border side to help promote folk dance and specifically morris in the local area.


The project was a great success and, shortly afterwards, 'West Somerset Border Morris' was formed.

Formed in 2015, West Somerset Border Morris are a mixed adult Border side dancing traditional and contemporary border dances along with a little Cotswold for those who want to.


Both sides meet on Thursday nights. The practice venues vary so please check the Diary page for more information.

In July 2017 we toured the Peak District from a base in Buxton.
