We are delighted to announce that our 2019 Diary is now starting to take shape.
Please take a look at where we plan to dance this year but be aware that all details are subject to alteration at this stage! Please check again before you travel to see us.
We never said that it would be easy, did we?!!
Shrewsbury Morris wishes you all a happy and prosperous new year.
We will be entertaining at some fabulous venues during the year, details of which will be published in due course.

Oh yes, and if we are dancing near you, come and say hello, we don’t bite, we just brandish sticks and hankies!!!
We are grateful to Paul Lindley for filming our exhibition dances at the Chippenham Folk Festival in May 2017: A great night was had by all…

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!
