Records show that a Morris side was dancing in Ripley in or around 1927.
In 2017 Ripley Morris Men will be marking this 90th anniversary with a Day of Dance in the nearby city of Derby.
Ripley Morris Men would like to invite all member sides and individual members of any of the three Joint Morris Organisations to join us in our celebrations.
Planning is in the early stages but we expect that dancing will be from 10.30am to 4.00pm around Derby with a final massed dance on the large Market Square.
To assist us in our planning it would be helpful if your side could indicate interest in joining this event by the end of November 2016 through the contact details below.
We will be sending out further details early in the New Year.
