The 2021/22 Practice season

We had our AGM, we elected some new officers to run the side and had a good chat about Morris in general.  So now we are into our usual winter practice season.  We welcome new members at any time, just pop along to have a chat and see what is involved in becoming a Morris Dancer.  Winter practices are the time we teach the steps and sequences of the dances so anyone with even a passing interest in traditional dance is most welcome come along.

50 years and the Pandemic

The pandemic of the last year could not have come at a worse time for The Men of Wight Morris. The year 2020, was the 50th anniversary of our foundation and the team had big plans for a celebration in June. Much of the year had been spent on the planning of the 2020 programme of events, including our normal “summer” programme which normally comprises about 30 dates.

Ceilidh - 8th June

Wootton Community Hall

As part of our Weekend of Dance, the Men of Wight will be organising a ceilidh on the evening of Saturday 8th June. This will be at Wootton Community Hall, which is just off Wootton High Street opposite Tesco Express.

The event is open to all, not just Morris dancers, so come along and fill the floor.

Doors will open at 8pm, continuing until 11pm. There is a bar, and we hope to put on a barrel. There will be no food, unfortunately.
