Saturday July 7th, The Square, Shrewsbury
The Shrewsbury Morris Dancers are again hosting one of their special free celebratory events in their home-town on Saturday 7th July.
The Square in Shrewsbury will see continuous entertainment from 10.00am to 4.00pm with a host of diverse performances to delight families, local residents and those from further afield.
Join us and watch the colourful dances and wonderful musicians from The Shrewsbury Lasses, The Shrewsbury Bull and Pump Morris Men and the toe-tapping intricacies of The Shrewsbury Cloggers. There will however, also be much more than this including the amazing Shropshire Ukulele Massive, the beautiful harmonies and voices of The Halfway House Male Voice Choir and the youthful talent of the Shropshire Youth Folk Ensemble.
Along with the music and dancing, and from much further afield, Thingumajig Street Theatre will be presenting their intriguing Kit and Caboodle Show featuring a pack mule with stories, puppets and songs of remarkable journeys by people past and present.
A wonderful day of varied entertainment – and it’s all free!
Don’t forget to make a note of all our contact addresses!
Calling all chaps – come along to our recruitment evening on Thursday 27th September at 8pm! Be ready for a good laugh and a great time!!
What better way to start the Christmas Spirit than to join us at our Famous Christmas Ceilidh on Saturday 1st December at Shrewsbury Academy?
Commuters at Shrewsbury Railway Station on Friday 23rd March were treated to more than they expected during celebrations to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the Heart of Wales line to Swansea.
Happy New Year from all of us at Shrewsbury Morris!
We will be publishing our 2018 Dance Programme soon, so watch this space.
You can see where we are dancing throughout 2017 on our Diary page – we’d love to see you during the year!
Our first dance out of the year is at the wonderful Big Busk in Shrewsbury – catch us there on April 1st.
Well, it rained. But we still walked 962km in total! And thanks to so many of you kindly donating, we’ve raised £1422 on JustGiving, and we think another £1000 offline. 4 lovely people representing the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity walked with us too – thank you!
It was a lovely day, we saw bits of Shropshire & Cheshire that many of us had never seen (personally, I recommend checking out the stretch of canal by Chemistry Farm in Whitchurch). Kingfishers & herons. Beautiful!
We finished up in the Red Lion in Ellesmere where Janet and the team fed up soup & chips. A fantastic team day and a really worthy charity supported.
