The Morris Ring: Welcome!

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 history, officers and contacts, member sides, music, events and much, much more.
