East Kent Morris, a mixed side of both men and women, perform Cotswold style Morris dance – that’s bells, sticks and handkerchiefs. Our uniforms are red, white and blue and we have Invicta on the back of our red waistcoats. He is Kent’s rampant white horse, seen on village nameplates all over.
We dance Adderbury, Fieldtown, Ilmington and other traditions. We are currently working on our Headington technique. These traditions are named after their parent Cotswold villages. Adderbury is now an Oxford suburb. We also dance eight-man dances from Lichfield, which is in Staffordshire, but the style is still ‘Cotswold’
Dances are selected that are fun to perform and attractive to watch.
