Details

Various traditions of Morris dancing will be represented, including clog dancing from the North West, rapper sword dancing from the North East, Molly dancing from East Anglia, and Border dancing from our own Welsh Borders area. There will also be displays from the Bellyfusion Dance Collective, who proved a hit last year and at the Bewdley Wassail.

Organiser Steve Podger said “this is a great opportunity for the public to see a diverse range of good quality Morris Dancing. There may even be a chance for you to get involved yourself!”

Wytchwood Morris are a group of men and women from the Wyre Forest who are interested in exploring the traditional and modern dances, tunes and songs of England. Formed in October 2010 we aim to dance new and traditional dances within the Border, Molly and Cotswold traditions. Folklore, mythology and local legend has a large influence on our style and repertoire. We practice at St Barnabas Community Hall, Wolverley Road, Franche on a Wednesday evening between 8pm and 10pm, and are always looking for new members. No experience necessary, just a reasonable level of fitness and a willingness to learn!
