Thaxted Morris Weekend

Thaxted Morris Weekend

Event date: 
Friday, May 29, 2020 - 08:00 to Sunday, May 31, 2020 - 15:00

The programme:

The weekend format is the same as it has been for the last 90 years and is a men only weekend. Informal dancing on Friday evening followed by singing and music in in the Maypole or Star. The Swan is for those who prefer a quieter night.

Coach tours on the Saturday with a hot meal at the lunch time pub on your tour. An evening feast sandwiched in between two evening massed shows in Town Street – which is closed to traffic – culminating with the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance.

On Sunday, there is the usual church service followed by dancing in the churchyard, before retiring to Bolford Street Hall for a substantial buffet lunch, and to finish off the beer, should there be any left after the feast.

The Cost:

The cost will be approximately £95 per head for those taking the full package, £40 for day men. However, we do offer a limited “take your pick” on the meals which will reduce the costs should you need to arrive after 9pm on Friday evening or depart earlier than 1pm on Sunday. Some of your men may wish to skip the breakfasts.

Thaxted Morris Weekend 2020 Friday 29th to Sunday 31st May will follow the tried and tested format of the last 90 years.
