JMO Day of Dance in Totnes

Dartington MM outside the Dartmouth Inn

On Sunday 3rd September 2017, we will once again host a day of Morris dancing in Totnes, as a Joint Morris Organisation (JMO) regional event. Dartington Morris Men are looking forward to welcoming guests from local Morris sides. The pattern will follow the same as in previous years, although this year we return to hosting the event on Sunday. Please contact the Bagman for more infomation.

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.

Dancing in Totnes in support of BBC Children in Need appeal

On Friday 14 November 2015 we danced out in Totnes, visiting nine pubs that agreed to welcome us. We were performing to collect for the BBC Children in Need appeal, joining with the Joint Morris Organisation to make a single large donation from Morris teams across the country. 

We are delighted at the generosity of the people of Totnes out that night, and we raised a total of £300. This is being passed on to the JMO to add to their single collected donation to the appeal.
