Who are we?
Mucky Mountains Morris is a morris side based around St Helens in Merseyside. Our dances are mainly in the Cotswold and Border traditions. We enjoy ourselves immensely, dancing at local events, pubs, days of dance and folk gatherings in the North West and beyond. From September to April we have a practice session almost every Thursday night. We celebrated our 30th Anniversary in 2019-20.
If you fancy trying morris dancing, come along and have a go at learning how it’s done!
Performances in 2021
We held our Weekend of Dance in the St Helens area on the 18th and 19th September, with several visiting sides.
This was our first live performance since December 2019, although we did manage one socially-distanced virtual performance on YouTube in August 2020.
We have been practising for most of the summer, but do not yet have a date for going back to the hall.
Community and charity
Bus Pass Morris
We now have just about enough retired dancers and musicians to entertain at the occasional midweek daytime event, mainly for charities, community groups and schools.
In case you’re unsure of our name, we’re Mucky Mountains Morris, not Mucky Mountain Morris or Mucky Mountains Morris Men!
