Morris

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.

Other Isle of Wight dance sides

There are several other Morris and folk-dance sides on the Isle of Wight

There are three ladies sides: The Oyster Girls and The Wight Bells both perform dances in the north-west tradition, while The Island Cloggies perform clog dances mainly from the north-east.

Many of the Men of Wight are married or otherwise related to members of these three sides.
