Welcome to Stroud Morris Dancers

Stroud Morris Dancers have been entertaining audiences in Stroud, Gloucestershire and much further afield for 40 years.

We usually dance on a Monday evening from May until September outside local pubs, but are in great demand to perform at events and festivals both in England and abroad. We've featured on Ashley Hutchings' (Fairport Convention / Albion Band / Steeleye Span) "Grandson of Morris On" album and in the “Morris On” show.


Why do we do it? Fun, a great social life, keeping our traditional dances thriving, keeping fit, for team-building skills, as a kind of meditation, a chance to play music, an excuse to get to the pub each week... the list goes on and on.

It seems like a long time since we posted pictures. It is so good to be  back!

 During the 2020 season we made a short film with Kim Strudwick, a local film maker. It was shown at the Open Studios Art exhibition in September 2021.
