Makeney Morris is available for your event!

Makeney Morris can easily be booked to appear at your event!

We dance at weddings, fetes, parties, clubs, festivals, pubs, stately homes, and anywhere else people want us to. We can provide a mixed set of dances or a fixed-set show for your event. We enjoy involving the audience and have taught Morris dancing to both adults and children.

A typical event would see us perform three twenty-minute sets over a two-hour period, but we are very adaptable! Our rates will vary depending on the type of event, but will usually only reflect any travel or in-kind expenses (entrance tickets, food, beer, etc.) We usually commit to events several months in advance, so please give us plenty of notice.
We do not charge for pub displays during the summer months, but we do pass the collection bucket around for donations.

Simply contact us to discuss your needs. We will respond as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that Makeney Morris is not committed to attending your event until we have confirmed the details with you and agreed on the arrangements and fee.

  • Book early. Our programme is often full up to a year in advance.
  • We need a firm level of space to dance on.
