50th Anniversary in 2018

Dartington Morris Men will celebrate 50 years of dancing in 2018! We are planning several special events to mark this special year, including a Day of Dance on 8 September 2018.

Our Day of Dance will be held in Dartmouth and will include a number of local Morris sides, plus a few from further afield. Invitations have gone out and once we have received confirmations, we will announce the sides that will join us for the day.

Hell's Bells - a short film about Morris dancers

Dartington Morris Men were delighted to be invited to take part in the short film Hell's Bells, written and directed by Devon-based director Luke Jeffery and released by Wandering Tiger..

We were involved on two occasions, filming at one of our favourite pubs - the Tally Ho - and at the splendid Hearn Field near Combeinteignhead, as well as several of our members being involved in recording the chorus to the song "So it was the maiden woke", written by Ben Hudson.

A Job Lot - music CD

The new CD 'A Job Lot' by Dartington Morris Men was released in September 2014.

It was produced to coincide with our Morris Ring meeting on September 5-7 2014 and is available for sale from us when you see us out and about.

Just £6.50, including free UK delivery.

How to book us for your venue

We are normally fully booked many months in advance, but please contact the Bagman if you wish to make a booking or simply enquire about one. We plan our summer programme in February each year but you can still ask - we don't like turning down great invitations!
