More details to follow but save this weekend in your 2018 diary.

The Morris Ring invites member sides to send delegates to its annual Jigs Instructional and offers Morris men of varying levels of competence a weekend of high-quality dance coaching – even those who have no ambition to perform jigs in public. 

Using the solo dance as a vehicle for instruction, this event will give you a good basic grounding in the art and science of Cotswold Morris in general and the Morris Jig in particular.

There are parallel streams for improvers and for accomplished dancers, plus sessions for less experienced men covering some basic techniques of the Cotswold dance. It all happens in Sutton Bonington, just off the A6 between Loughborough and Derby.

The weekend offers
• COSY indoor camping (including showers)
• REALLY GOOD food from Friday supper to Sunday lunch
• DELICIOUS beer for the Feast
• EXPERT and PATIENT instruction
• CONVIVIAL company and a PUB with an abundance of MUSIC and SONG.

SPECIAL OFFER to Morris Ring member clubs: first time delegates receive a £10 discount; second timers get £5 off! Reimbursement is on application to the Morris Ring Treasurer by your side’s
bagman after the event.

More details will follow but it is not too early to register your interest. Talk to your side's all-knowing Bagman, or contact the J.I. Bagman, Tony Foard jigsinstructional [at] themorrisring.org  who will be pleased to answer any questions you may have.

Morris men from the less experienced to the seasoned campaigner are all welcome!

Pip! Pip!
