Performing at 8pm in Broadwindsor Square on Tuesday, 24th May will be the Wyld Morris Dancers. The White Lion will be open for refreshments both before the performance and afterwards 🙂
Frustrated by the gender division in traditional Morris dancing groups, retired airline stewardess Briony Blair established Wyld Morris as a way to let men and women dance together. The group, which is now 20-strong, will soon celebrate their tenth anniversary.
When talking to the West Dorset magazine, Briony commented, ““At Wyld Morris we’re not picky about who wants to join us: all are welcome, and we love sharing our passion for this with other people. Our members range, at the moment, from their early 40s to one member who is now 85 and is still dancing well.”
“Collectively, we may not be the best Morris dancing group in the world but we have fun and we always have a great reception form the public when we perform.”

The group meet on Wednesday evenings at Monkton Wyld Court, Charmouth at 7.30pm. Anyone who is interested in learning more about the group should visit wyldmorris.org.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you on the 24th!
