It’s been a busy few weeks at Shrewsbury Morris! We ran two open evenings in January and were delighted to welcome quite a few newcomers, despite the weather. We had great support from Radio Shropshire who ran several interviews with team members and newcomers in January too.
Several of the people who came along to see what we are all about enjoyed themselves so much that they came back! Last week’s practice was so well attended we were able to split up into three groups and get some really intensive practice in and our string section in the band has increased by 2 people.
We are filling up our spring/summer programme, so if you want to book us for anything get in quick! You can email us here or Tweet us at @shrewsmorris
In team social news we are all looking forward to our annual walking weekend, this year in beautiful Snowdonia at Bryn Gwynant.
And our big focus for the year is hosting the Morris Federation AGM. Plans are well advanced and we are hoping to fill Shrewsbury with Morris sides on September 28th 2013. Watch out for more updates soon!
If you want to come along and join in, we rehearse on Thursday nights in Sundorne School, Shrewsbury at 8pm – come along one evening and see what we’re all about.
Our first Shrewsbury Morris Open Evening last night (17th Jan) was a great sucess and it was good to see how quickly the newcomers picked up the dances. If you missed last night our next Open Evening is Thursday January 24th 2013 at Sundorne School, Corndon Crescent, Shrewsbury SY1 4LL from 8.00 pm. Don’t miss out on the fun and laughter you’ll be made very welcome and there will be drinks and nibbles (and did we mention cake?). Thanks to Radio Shropshire for the interviews-look forward to hearing them. Should feature on 2 or 3 shows over the next few days!
This Thursday, that’s the 17th January 2013, sees the first of two Open Evenings with The Shrewsbury Morris Dancers! Come along and find out more about morris dancing, why we do it, what we do, who we are and of course, have a go. Absolutely free and we throw in drinks and nibbles as well. So put on some sensible shoes (trainers are fine), and head down to Sundorne School, Corndon Crescent in Shrewsbury SY1 4LL for some fun in good company.
Morris Dancing with The Shrewsbury Morris Dancers is street theatre and dance performance so if you have always fancied yourself as a performer come along the company is great!
Seem to be getting a lot of interest in our Open Evenings!

Then come along to one (or both) of our Open Evenings. Thursdays, January 17th and 24th from 8.00 pm at Sundorne School, Corndon Crescent, Shrewsbury SY1 4LL.
Good company, good fun and drinks and nibbles guaranteed!.
Ladies and Gentlemen, somewhat incredibly our Christmas Ceilidh has completely sold out well over a week before the event!
If you have a ticket already, brilliant! See you there.
If you have pre-ordered a ticket and are paying for it on the night…..brilliant…..you will get in without any problem. See you there.
If you have not yet bought a ticket or pre-ordered a ticket then sorry but there are none left and you will not be able to get in. There will NOT now be any payment for entry at the door. If you were planning to come without a ticket you will not be able to get in, (with the greatest regret). Please pass on if you know anyone intending to come and pay at the door.
We are looking forward to a packed and really fun night. See you there (if you have a ticket!
We’ll be adding things to the site over the next few weeks but it’s live now so feel free to explore.
