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 - have a click at our Future Events tab to see what's what on our calendar.
For the 2nd April we're taking a traditional Maundy Thursday break, so give yourself a breather. After Easter we will be giving up our peripatetic adventures (for now) and you can expect to find us every week in the Dance Studio of the Richmond Building on Queens Road, Clifton. Practices are 8-10pm on Thursdays, and 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.
JMO Day of Dance

Fancy a go?
New recruits are always welcome. Our Morris teaching year begins in October so that's when we'll be looking 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 email@example.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.
IT'S THE OLYMPICS!
Yes that 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 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.
