Event date:

We will be holding our annual Ale 2019 over the weekend 7th, 8th & 9th June and we would like Morris Rng member sides to come and join us. 

We still have some details to finalise, including the cost, but this is what we propose,

The Weekend will be based in our home village of Wrotham in Kent with its three pubs.

We will start on the Friday evening with a hot supper followed by singing and music sessions in the local pubs. After breakfast on Saturday there will be two tours by classic transport. We will be travelling round the Kent countryside visiting Local Breweries, Good Pubs and other attractions.

Then back to Wrotham for a lavish Feast. This will be followed by sessions, or if you wish dancing, in and around the Pubs.

After breakfast on Sunday morning we will be moving to Tonbridge for more dancing including a massed display, followed by lunch. We will be joined by other local sides, who will continue the dancing after the formal close of our Ale.

We will be using Wrotham Village Hall as a base and for catering, the Cricket Pavilion for indoor camping with its hot showers, and school playing field as a secure campsite for vans and tents. There will be a designated room for women performers.

Guest numbers are limited to around 70 on a first come basis, so early applications are advisable and should be received by 1st December 2018.

If you are interested in joining us let me know by email to - bagman [at]

Please give the name of your side, your estimated numbers and Contact details (phone No. & email address).
