Brighton Morris combine performance and tradition with a sense of fun and a taste for good ale. Our version of Morris is always evolving. We are proud to have a series of new dances written for us by one of our members, Glen Redman, in our own Lewes Tradition.
As part of Brighton & Hove’s diverse culture, we welcome the opportunity to link up with with other dance and performance groups who share our love of dancing in a spirit of inclusivity. And we welcome new dancers (experienced or not, from any race, background or culture) to share and celebrate our tradition.
Our public performance season runs from St George’s Day (23 April) to early October each year, and we practice from October to April.
We dance at community events, outside pubs and wherever people want us. You can also book us for private events, conferences, weddings, workshops and so on at any time of the year.
We are members of the Morris Federation, one of the three national Joint Morris Organisations. We support their statements rejecting a narrow and divisive interpretation of our tradition here and on the unacceptability of black full-face make-up here
