Rag Morris

A big hello to all visiting here, whether you're interested in folk music, morris dancing or both, welcome to the Rag Morris and Folk Club website!

Morris Practices
This Thursday is the first practice of the autumn term. Join us at the Bristol Community Dance Centre on Jacobs Wells Road, from 8.15pm - 10pm, for an intro into the world of morris dancing. No fee, no kit needed, just come along with comfy clothes and shoes for an active evening. We'll be heading to a nearby pub afterwards.

Yes it was us! 24 members of Rag Morris performed on stage with Eric Idle, an opera singer, roller skating nuns, Roman soldiers, angels, Bhangra dancers, Blackheath Morris Men, Scottish pipers and a cross-dressing Welsh rugby choir as part of the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games! What an experience that was for all involved! Well done to all the Raggies who took part. Check out our Olympic pages for details and photos of the event.

New recruits are always welcome. If you're interested in learning some morris dancing we recruit especially at the beginning of October, when we begin the teaching year, but don't let that stop you, come along at any time! And if you're musically inclined bring along your instrument and join our band. Get in touch and come, to dance or play, whoever you are!

We practise in term time every Thursday night. Currently we are at The Bristol Dance Centre, Jacob's Wells Road, Clifton, BS8 1DX at 8.15 p.m. Do check the practice calendar and Contact Us beforehand if you're not a regular attender to ensure we'll be there.

If you're a UBU member you can join the society by visiting and logging in here or simply Contact Us.
