Border Morris dancers for the Festival

Border Morris dancers for the Festival
Black Swan and Moonshine in action

FANTASTIC news! We’ve just learned that Moonshine Border Morris are coming all the way from the Isle of Wight to join in the Hampton Wick Festival on 2nd August. They’ll be joined by the Black Swan team from Carshalton.

Border Morris is a dance tradition from the English / Welsh border counties with roots going back to the 16th century.

The tradition is characterised by its black faces or masks, tattered shirts or coats and the clashing of sticks whilst dancing. Music is by Melodeon, Drum, Fiddle and other traditional instruments.

Definitely no white hankies or jingly bells – you’ve never seen Morris dancing like this!
