We are a Traditional Men’s Morris side, dancing in and around the Chichester area, formed in 1953 and have been dancing in the villages of West Sussex in the summer ever since. The side has a wide repertoire of dances, mainly in the Cotswold style.

Our dances are based round those from the villages of Adderbury, Bampton, Fieldtown and Lichfield, with a few Border dances thrown in to change the style.

During the Spring and Summer we dance out at local events, pubs and travel to festivals, so if you would like us to perform at your location/event please contact us.

From October onwards we meet every Wednesday evening at The Southbourne Club and welcome new members to come and join us. You need no previous dancing experience to become a Morris dancer, but an outgoing personality is an advantage, along with a sense of humour, and a liking for a good social life.

We travel far and near during the summer - what better way to enjoy the delights of the countryside!.
