Redbornstoke Morris 1976 – 2016
We are celebrating out 40th anniversary this summer and we have had a couple of special events taking place.
•Over the weekend of April 15th – 18th we had a visit by Les Danseurs Occitane, our friends from Ampthill’s twin town of Nissan-lez-Enserune, in Southern France.
On Saturday 16th the two sides danced in Bedford and the following day took part in the Folk Weekend in Oxford.
•During the first weekend in July, Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd, we held a joint 40th Anniversary celebration with Oyster Morris from Whitstable in Kent. A number of other sides joined us to dance in Bedford on the Saturday and at the Ampthill Gala on Sunday.
We practise on Monday nights during winter months at Redborne Upper School, North Site, Ampthill, MK45 2NU from 8.15pm.
There will be an Open Night on 17th October, so if you wish to “Give it a try” come and have a go with no obligation!
Redbornstoke Morris is a men’s side based in Ampthill, Bedfordshire. The side was created in 1976 and is still going strong, with a core of around a dozen members. We dance in and around Bedfordshire and the surrounding areas and also travel further afield when the fancy (or the invitations) takes us.
We can be seen performing outside pubs and in other venues throughout the year. We are a men's side who specialise in our own interpretation of Cotswold style dancing in the summer months, when we dance in whites; but in winter we have taken to performing an amalgam of border and molly, for which we dress in black.
We are always on the lookout for new members, whether they have previous experience of morris dancing or as new recruits (we were all beginners once). We practice on most Monday nights at Redborne School in Ampthill from September till the start of the summer dance season, which is the first of May.
Just contact us through one of the members on our Contact list, or come along and meet us when we are dancing out. Alternatively, join us at the Albion in Ampthill after a practice session (after 10pm).
If you fancy popping along to see us perform, check the programme attached to this website.
The side is available for bookings, but contact us in well in advance as we have a fairly busy schedule and all need to consult our diaries..
