Welcome to Morris Minors

Welcome to the Morris Minors website.

The Summer holidays beckon and half of 2019 lies behind us. There are still a couple of dates available before July.

This is your contact point for all things Morris and all things traditional in music song and dance.

Keep us in mind for something to liven up the gloomy days of the Autumn Term and cast aside the Brexit woes.

Our Objectives

To provide Morris Dancing tuition for children in schools and youth groups in Hull and East Yorkshire.
To train and support those working with children and young people to teach Morris Dancing.
To support and promote Morris Dancing and other traditional dance, music and song in Hull and East Yorkshire.

Thank you for your interest. Please click on one of the items on the black menu bar above to visit our other pages. As part of our  commitment to the promotion of Morris Dancing in general you may also find our “See Morris” and “Links” sections worth examining.
