Would you like Brighton Morris to come and dance at your pub on a summer evening? Have you got a special occasion coming up and you want to have some real traditional English entertainment for your customers?
We are always on the lookout for new venues to dance at. We especially like
- local pubs with good draught ale and a bit of space in the garden or the road out front
- traditional, up and coming, or turnaround venues that are looking to build new trade
- pubs with a sense of fun, good beer and a willingness to welcome a score of thirsty dancers and musicians.
We are a summer side so we dance from May to the end of September, on Thursday evenings. We’ll dance for an hour or so, weather permitting, but sometimes for longer if the muse is with us. With a usual start of around 8 pm we go on to dusk(ish). If weather is not permitting then we have also been known to carry on the dancing indoors – we are versatile.
You will usually get between 10 and 20 dancers and musicians – sometimes more – and if there are enough of you then maybe you’ll want to join in too! We don’t use amplified or recorded music and we like to dance outside, so a bit of space will be needed.
Please be prepared to meet our desire for good ale, particularly if we bring along some of our friends from another local Morris Side. We have been known to drink pubs dry!!
After the dancing, we may ask if we can sing in the bar – we can’t really compete with TV’s and juke boxes though, and best not choose the quiz night.
We have our own public liability insurance and we will provide you with posters a couple of weeks before we visit.
We do not charge you for our appearance but a plate of sandwiches and a jug of beer wouldn’t go amiss!
Please do get in touch so we can discuss the details and help you put on a great evening’s entertainment.
However, please be aware that we do have a busy programme every year and our dates are usually confirmed by the end of February, so get in early because all requests are dealt with in the order that we receive them. If we confirm an appearance then we will arrive.
