Where to find us…

We are currently not dancing out due to the risks of COVID-19. Practices may resume in September, but we cannot yet confirm this.

Etcetera Morris Men are based in Enfield, a town some 12 miles north of the City of London and just within the M25.

Practice nights are Mondays – see the Diary page for dates. For more information see the About page.

NEWSFLASH – Day of Dance 2021!

…tomorrow!

That’s right – join us on Saturday 16th October in Enfield Town and around as we dance and have some fun, now that we’re allowed to again!

Wondering about the New Year

Thanks to all those friends, followers and (dare we say?) fans who have been in touch over the course of 2020 to say hello and say they miss us. We miss you all too and want to say Happy New Year!

Regrettably, the current situation sees us unable to hold our traditional New Year’s Day Spectacular to mark the arrival of 2021, so we won’t be dancing to greet the New Year today.

May Day in lockdown

We might not have danced up the dawn.

We might not have headed to a local pub this evening to dance and drink and welcome the start of the Morris season. We may have some printed programmes that won’t see the light of day too…

Happy May Day!

However, we still want to wish all our followers, friends and fellow Morris dancers a happy May Day!

Happy St George’s Day 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

We’ve got a box or two of summer programmes that sadly it seems won’t see the light of day this year. We’re keeping in touch within the side via messages and a daily Morris tune, and just starting to tinker with video conferencing. Remote Morris and the perils of video latency make joining in together quite tricky! We haven’t tried singing yet…

We’d also like to take the time to say “we miss you” to the other Morris sides we normally see and are now not expecting to meet this Morris season.

Happy New Year from Etcetera Morris Men

So, farewell 2019. We had some great dancing moments. Today, however, is about welcoming the new year and a new decade.

With that aim in mind, put on your hat and coat, stretch your legs and come to our New Year’s Day Spectacular at The Wonder in Enfield. There will be Morris Dancing from 12.30pm today for our annual celebration of the new year. We’d be glad to see you there, maybe you could even join in – the more the merrier!

Happy New Year, once again!

Merry Christmas from Etcetera Morris Men

From Etcetera Morris Men a very Merry Christmas to all our audiences for 2019, our fans, followers, and associated hangers-on!

Thanks for all your support over the last year, either in watching and joining in, or through social media follows, likes, re-tweets etc, helping with publicity, carrying the sticks, and so on.

Your next chance to see us is at our New Year’s Day Spectacular at The Wonder in Enfield at 12.30pm. Help us welcome the new decade as we dance in the year 2020 with friends from other groups joining the fun! Details on the New Year’s Day page.

You asking? We’re dancing!

With the year’s early appearances at Forty Hall Farm and for St George’s Day behind us it’s now the 1st of May, the traditional start of the Morris dancing out season. Looking at our social media feeds today, this morning Morris dancing sides around the country were up and about dancing up the dawn and generally making merry, with optimism about the coming dancing season (if nothing else). Well done to them for keeping that tradition going.

Our 2019 Programme

The arrival of May Day means it’s now time to put all our practice over the last six or seven months to the test as we head out on our summer dancing season. This season will see at least one new dance to be premiered somewhere and the return of some we’ve not done in public recently.

So, we are looking forward to the season – which will see us dancing around the Enfield area, celebrating local events and successes, enjoying a beer or two, and representing our home town up in the Yorkshire Dales as part of the Leeds Morris Men’s Annual Dales Tour. If you’re one of the people who has asked and isn’t yet lucky enough to have got your hands on our 2019 Programme of Dance yet, or if you’re just curious, check out where to find us over on our Diary page. We hope to see you at one or more of the spots we dance at over summer 2019!
