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

2018 Whitchurch Morris Men will be celebrating our 70th Anniversary of formation. From the small beginning of two families of brothers, who enjoyed country dancing, thinking they would like to give Morris Dancing a try, and progressing so well that Whitchurch MM were elected to join the Morris Ring in 1949, the side is still thriving and attempting to promote the Morris, and demonstrate good dancing, and fun!

The Hartley Morris Men will be holding their annual Ale over the weekend 8th-10th June 2018.
Our weekend Ales have always taken the format of a ‘traditional’ Ring Meeting (but without a Church service) so as with our 2017 event we are happy to again run it as one in 2018, to which all Morris Ring sides are invited to attend.

New Year's Day is becoming an increasingly popular "tradition" adding to the activities surrounding 12th Night and Plough Monday. These are the events we are aware of - there's still time to add your side's activity if we've missed it.
