Welcome to the Deorfrith Morris website.
Coronavirus Covid-19 has meant that we have been unable to dance out either in summer 2020 or during summer 2021. Unfortunately two of our members are now no longer dancing with us and to be able to restart practices in September we needed to build the side up again. We have been unable to recruit sufficient new members and as the side is too small really to be viable, we have reluctantly decided to close.
Who we are and where to find us.
Deorfrith Morris is a mixed Morris side based in The New Forest in Hampshire. During the autumn and winter months we practise on Tuesday evenings at Deorfrith Lodge - the Scout Hut in Lyndhurst. During the summer, most Tuesday evenings you will find us dancing somewhere in or near the New Forest, usually outside a public house. At week-ends during the summer we may dance at folk festivals, village fetes, and other organised events - whatever takes our fancy.
We dance in several Cotswold traditions, including a couple which are rarely seen in this area; we also dance a few Border dances.
If you would like to join us, and we should be delighted to see new dancers or musicians, come along to one of our practice evenings (October to April) at the Scout Hut in Wellands Road in Lyndhurst at about 8:15 p.m.
Thank you to all of you who came along to watch us during 2019, and we look forward to seeing you again next summer.
