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!
Due to ongoing building work at the students union building our practice venue is moving about, but will usually be somewhere in the students union. Check back here each week to find out where exactly we'll be that Thursday. This week's practice will take place on Thursday 5th December: 8.15pm-10.15pm Bristol Dance Centre, Jocobs Wells Rd.

IT'S THE OLYMPICS!
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.
WANT TO JOIN US?
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 at 20:00 in term time every Thursday night at the Students' Union Building, Queen's Road, Clifton, Bristol, England (though not for the time being! See above.). Do check the practice calendar and Contact Us beforehand if you're not a regular attender to ensure we'll be there.
