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!

Come and see us at our many outings this year. See the Current Events on the Calendar.

Morris Practices - different venue
Due to ongoing building works at the Students Union the next practices will be at varying locations. Confirmed are Bristol University Students' Union (Richmond Building) in Queens Road on Thursdays 15th and 22nd January 2015 at 8.00 p.m. in the Dance Studio. Keep looking here for further information, or email bag@ragmorris.com to check. Each week we teach a new dance completely from basics. 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! Just drop an email to bag@ragmorris.com
