The Morris Ring was formed over 80 years ago to encourage the performance of the Morris, to maintain its traditions and to preserve its history; to bring into contact all the Men's Morris Clubs or Teams. It is now an association of 150 Men's Morris, Sword and Mummers Clubs and Teams. 

Within these pages you will find all you need to know about our rich historyofficers and contacts, member sides, music, events and much, much more. Take time to browse our newsletters and announcements, publications and reports and spend your money freely in the Morris Shop

News and views from elsewhere in the Morris Ring world

The majority of traditional Whitsuntide events have migrated to the Late Spring Bank Holiday at the end of May. The late Spring Bank Holiday on the last Monday in May attempts to deal with the fact that Whitsuntide is a moveable feast dependent on the date of Easter. Thus the Whit Monday holiday is not necessarily at the church's Whitsuntide. As always, check for the actual date of the event.

At the recent JMO day of dance in Leicester, the JMO Committee prepared a document to use as a handout for sides using black face paint.  Following requests to make this more widely available, a PDF download version has now been prepared and is available on this page for sides to use.
