The Bathampton Morris Men

We are a Cotswold Morris Dance group, distinguished by a red belt and baldric over a white shirt and trousers. The red baldric bears the symbol of Chaucer's Wyf of Bath on the front and rear, surrounded by a yellow rosette.

The side was founded in 1934 by a Bathampton village school teacher. Since then we have provided years of continuous dancing in the area.

Bathampton is a small village by the Kennet and Avon Canal on the outskirts of Bath in North Somerset. Our dance season begins here every year on May 1st when we dance outside the village school. After that we have a full summer dance programme which takes us to many villages in Somerset and Wiltshire on Thursday evenings between May and August. In addition, we attend special events, take bookings and organise a number of tours in Britain and abroad.

If you are interested in joining us, or just curious, we practise on Thursday evenings from October to April in the Church Hall in Winsley, near Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire. We hold an Open Evening at the beginning of October which is specifically aimed members of the general public who have an interest in morris dancing.
