  • Abingdon Traditional Morris Dancers : Saturday nearest June 19th. Election of the Mayor of Ock Street and Morris dancing, Abingdon, Oxfordshire
  • Taunton Deane MM :  21st June - 4:45am (sunrise) Dance Up the Sun: Seven Sisters, Cothelstone Hill, The Quantock Hills.
  • Tideswell Wakes :  Saturday after June 24th - or “Big Sat’dy” as it is known to the locals - Carnival Parade & Morris Dancing, Tideswell, Derbyshire.
  • Abram Morris Dancers :  Last Saturday in June. It is with much sadness that we are having to cancel this year's Abram Morris Dance, for the first time, pandemic aside, since the team's revival in 1984.  
Following last year's very successful and enjoyable 40th year event we have unfortunately lost a number of dancers through retirement and illness. Despite our best efforts to recruit new members, this has unfortunately proved fruitless. As a consequence we do not have enough dancers to make this year's dance on June 29th possible. 
We would like to thank all of those who have come to see us keep this tradition over the years, and hope that in the future we will be able to dance again.
