What's on in Quorn Village

Morris dancing workshop - dancers (beginners and experienced) and musicians welcome!

Tuesday 23rd January 2024
The Church Rooms, Quorn - 7:30 pm

Ladies, are you looking for something different? A bit of a challenge? Something that is great fun and has some history behind it? Try Morris dancing. Anstey Royale Chalfont are holding a workshop on Tuesday 23 January, 7.30 to 9.30 pm in the Church Rooms, Quorn. Come along and try out some dances and learn a bit about this old English custom.

Here are some facts which might interest you. The first written record of Morris dancing was in the 1500s. Anstey Royale Chalfont are relative newcomers, having formed just 40 years ago. There are different forms of Morris – Cotswold and Border are two of them. We dance north-west Morris, which is based on what mill workers in Lancashire and surrounding areas danced.

Chaps – and non-dancing ladies - don’t feel left out! Are you a musician? Whatever you play from penny whistle to double bass, you would be welcome.

For more information please contact us on the details below.
