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.
Just as the sun is rising on Thursday May 1st 2014, Dartington Morris Men will once again be dancing in Totnes Castle. Last year there was excellent local support from a number of people who came to watch and share the experience of this tradition. We are hoping for even more support this year, so why not come along and join us? Admission to the castle is FREE, as we've already paid the entrance fee!
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.
In September 2014, Dartington Morris Men will host a meeting of Morris Ring sides, centred in the picturesque town of Dartmouth, Devon. This will be the third such meeting hosted by Dartington MM.
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.
In addition to our usual pre-Christmas performance at the Dartington Shops (formerly the Cider Press Centre) at Shinner's Bridge, this year we will also dance in Totnes town centre. You can find us at about midday near the Dartmouth Inn on the Plains in Totnes, and later at about 2pm in Dartington.
We hope to see you there!
