About New Moon Morris

New Moon Morris dancing in TringNew Moon Morris is an inclusive mixed Morris side based on the Herts/Beds/Bucks border.

We were formed at the end of 2014 and we started ‘dancing out’ at the beginning of 2015. We now dance locally as well as at big festivals further afield. We dance anywhere from pubs to museums. In the spring and summer we are ‘dancing out’ most weeks. Increasingly we dance at events around Christmas, too. We particularly love to the opportunity to dance with other sides. We also occasionally perform for private events, usually for a modest fee to our charity of the year, and our band sometimes performs on its own, providing music for a variety of events— from pubs and ceilidhs to canal festivals.

We began in the ‘North West clog tradition’ dances but now are adding dances from other traditions, as well as making new dances of our own.

The side welcome new dancers and musicians, you can find out more on the ‘Thinking of Joining Us?’ page (under About in the menu). We meet most Tuesday evenings from 8.15 to 10.15 at the Old Town Hall, Ivinghoe, Buckinghamshire, LU7 9EP. As we are not always there on a Tuesday evening you can check our Calendar, or e-mail our Squire. Or follow us on Facebook:
