We are a Plymouth-based Morris side, of no fixed style, but using elements of other traditions (Border and Molly mostly). Our practice base is the Fortescue, Plymouth, and we meet on Tuesday nights.
The last Tuesday of the month we play at the Folk night at the Fort in the main bar.
Our kit is based on the city’s coat of arms. Well, to be more precise, it’s based on a variant of that design, connected with the old workhouse. Our name’s taken from the nickname of the oldest almshouse in the city, the Old Church Twelves.
In Dec 2023 we celebrated our 10th year in the Dolphin pub, on the Barbican, which is now our annual winter solstice dance out.
