Dancers needed for the Original Welsh Border Tour

The Original Welsh Border Morris Men (OWBMM) practices in a pub near Worcester on the first Saturday of December and dances out around the villages and towns of Worcestershire on the Saturday before Christmas. OWBMM was crucial to the revival of border dancing in the early 70s and each year since the tour has been a gathering of men from across the country and indeed the morris dance spectrum. A full coach of 55 dancers and musicians has kept the traditional border dances alive.

This year will be like no other for obvious reasons, but as things stand we will tour again!

Sadly some vulnerable members, understandably, feel unable to dance this year so there will be places on the coach and we welcome applications from dancers who would like to join us this year. If you are interested in being added to the mailing list email bagman Mike Finn m_w_finn [at] yahoo [dot] co [dot] uk. Details of this year's tour will be emailed at some stage this month.
