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.

Men of Wight donation to local charity

It's always been a tradition of the Men of Wight to donate each year to local charities.  Amongst this year's chosen recipients, MoW were pleased to give a cheque to the IW branch of ASBAH, the Association for Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus.

Formed in 1966, the charity works with people with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus, their families and other carers.

Our costume

Every morris side has a distinctive costume, and a wide variety of colours and styles can be seen at any morris gathering.

Each side chooses its own design, there are no special rules except that morris men always wear bells on their legs, and always wear a hat! The rest of the costume, its colours and motifs, are usually chosen to reflect the town or area that the side represents
