Welcome to the Rag Morris and Folk Club website!

Summer on its way out, but morris dancing is so in. It is, trust us.

So as the Autumn weather drives in, so does the beginning of our practice year! Why not come and shelter in the student union building with us on Thursday evenings? We're looking forward to some fireside fun at our annual apple-picking trip in Devon, and getting our Halloween plans underway as we enjoy the turn of the season together. Our Folk Club details are on the Folk Club tab (we're imaginative like that), and we're so excited to see new players (or listeners!). Incidentally, Folk Club's always inside, in the warm, if you're someone who likes that kind of thing. Wherever you see us, we really can't wait for you to come and say hello.

First practice of this term is on Thursday 11th January! In the Bristol Student Union Building in Clifton, 8-10pm.

Morris Practices
We practise on Thursday evenings in the Student Union building in Clifton. Each evening we teach a new dance completely from basics, so you can turn up at any point in the year and get the hang of what's going on. No fee, no kit needed - just show up with comfy clothes and your bounciest shoes for an active evening. We head to a great nearby pub afterwards.

Book us!
Rag Morris are always happy to be invited to dance at festivals, fêtes, wassails, weddings and any other event you can think of. To add our friendly faces to your event, drop an email to bag@ragmorris.com and our domesticated Bagperson will tell you all you need to know.

The Folk Club also has a snazzy new ceilidh band for hire! Get in touch with folkclub@ragmorris.com if that sounds as exciting to you as it does to us...

Fancy a go?
New recruits are always welcome. Our Morris teaching year begins in late September so that's when we look at the easier dances and going on a bit of a recruitment drive, but don't hold back - you're welcome along at any time! If you're musically inclined, we'd love you to bring along your instrument and join our band. Come along, to dance or play, whoever you are! If you want to get in touch before turning up just drop an email to bag@ragmorris.com.

If you're a UBU member you can join the society by visiting and logging in here. That'll cost you the grand fee of £0! We like free stuff as much as the next handful of broke students.

Our Facebook page is a great place to find out what we're up to, or take a look at the annals of our past adventures (you can get there from the tabs at the head of the page).

Part of that Olympic Spirit!
Yes that was us! For London 2012, twenty-four 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 Welsh rugby choir as part of the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games! What an experience it 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.
