Welcome to your source for News and Events of the Uttoxeter Heart of Oak Morris
"When he is dancing, the true Morris Man is serious of countenance, yet light of heart; vigorous, yet restrained;
a strong man rejoicing in his strength, yet graceful, controlled and perfectly dignified withal."
- Cecil Sharp.
This is your source for Uttoxeter Morris events and news and information about English Morris. There is information about how you can learn to dance just for fun and keep fit, or to join our team.
Morris Dancing is a popular show to have at your fete or event, and although we continue to receive more bookings than we can accept and sadly, without new members we will not be able to continue beyond 2015. It is a strange irony that although Morris Dancing has never been more popular to watch, it has never, for us, been harder to get new recruits to join and learn the dances. If you wish to see the Uttoxeter Morris Men continue beyond this year, please come and join us in this wonderful traditional activity.
On this site is everything you need to know about:
- Where and when we are dancing
- How to book us to dance at your event
- How to become a Uttoxeter Morris Man
- How to learn Morris for fun and to keep fit
- All about the history and different traditions of Morris Dance
There is a page where you can contact us or send a message.
I hope you enjoy this site. Its development has been sponsored by Community Development Grant from East Staffordshire Borough Council. The Uttoxeter Morris are most grateful to our local Borough and County Councilors.
