If you would like to know a little about Dartington Morris Men, when and where we dance, how we dance and why we dance, then you're in the right place - our online calendar is kept right up to date. We also have a photo gallery and a fine collection of sheet music for traditional tunes; and you can listen to samples from our very own CD, which you can order online for quick delivery.
In September 2014, Dartington Morris Men hosted a meeting of Morris Ring sides, centred in the picturesque town of Dartmouth, Devon. This was the third such meeting hosted by Dartington MM and the 343rd such meeting of the Morris Ring. We would like to thank our visitors and the many spectators who turned out to see us during a wonderful weekend of music, song and dance.
The new CD from Dartington Morris Men was released in September 2014.
It was produced to coincide with our Morris Ring meeting on September 5-7 and is available for sale from us when you see us out and about. It will be available for mail order from this website in the very near future. In the meantime, please contact us if you'd like to order a copy.
Just as the sun was rising on Thursday May 1st 2014, Dartington Morris Men once again danced in Totnes Castle. We had a super and appreciative audience braving the early start and risk of rain and it makes it so much more enjoyable - thank you to all that cam e along and we hope to see you again next year!
In common with a number of Morris dance teams elsewhere in the UK, we dance at dawn on May Day each year to mark the beginning of our summer dance programme.
An excellent evening was had at Rattery Village Hall by all attending our evening of social dance, with music provided by the excellent Rumpus Ceilidh Band.
Be sure to watch out for the next ceilidh later in the year. For more info, contact us on events [at] dartingtonmorrismen [dot] org [dot] uk (subject: DMM%20Ceilidh%20enquiry) .
Thanks to the generous donations from our audiences at both Totnes on Boxing Day and Hope Cove on New Year's day, we will shortly be making donations to our chosen charities for this year. These are Rowcroft Hospice and the Totnes and South Hams branch of the Chernobyl Children's Lifeline - two fantastic organisations that we are delighted to support.
