We are Makeney Morris

Makeney Morris are a mixed Morris dancing side who perform in the Cotswolds tradition. The side is made up of both experienced and new dancers who want to uphold tradition but also bring a more contemporary feel to the performance of Morris dancing. With an average age of under 30 Makeney Morris prides itself on energetic performances that capture the audience’s attention. From flowing hanky Morris Dancing to surging stick dances there is something for everyone to enjoy.
