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 Morris Shop web site is being rebuilt. In the meantime please email shaun [at] or go to Facebook at

Members have until 20th January to apply for Personal Accident insurance for cover in 2018 whilst dancing or at an event where a dancing display is taking place, whilst at practice or in transit to or from either location. This benefit is for Ring Side members aged between 16 and 70, within the UK, or for members of The Joint Morris Organisation member sides.

These are the Yuletide and Christmas events we are aware of, and I've dug as deep as the interweb will allow! If we've missed yours, or wish to add more information, please contact the web editor.
