Jet Set was formed in Whitby in1999 with the intention of bringing traditional Border Morris to our region, but from a different perspective.

We have broken with tradition in adopting an elegant Gothic style kit and using dark glasses to provide our disguise rather than blackening our faces.

We incorporate stories and legends from the local history of Whitby and the North Yorkshire moors in our dances, most of which have been created by team members, both past and present.

Whitby is famous for its jet jewellery, hence our name Jet Set.
