There seems to be Morris Dancing in Warrington town centre nearly every other week.


Today there were a load of dancers. I asked one of them, who said is was a Morris Dancers Day, when groups from all over gather together.


There was even a Morris dancing horse!


Morris dance is a form of English folk dance usually accompanied by music. It is based on rhythmic stepping and the execution of choreographed figures by a group of dancers, usually wearing bell pads on their shins. Implements such as sticks, swords and handkerchiefs may also be wielded by the dancers. In a small number of dances for one or two men, steps are performed near and across a pair of clay tobacco pipes laid across each other on the floor.
