With no tradition of Morris Dance existing in Irchester, a small group of individuals set out to begin one back in 2006. From lowly beginnings with just a few dancers and no musicians, we now present a mix of traditional and original dances performing at events both big and small. We are also regular participants at organised festivals and Days of Dance up and down the country. We like to support local charities, fetes, fayres and celebrations and enjoy putting a smile on peoples faces. New members are welcome and have the opportunity to join a friendly group who do not take themselves too seriously but have fun whilst being both entertaining and creative.  The original group began with dances that they created, based upon the Cotswold style. Today we have extended our repertoire, still mainly in the Cotswold style but often borrowing from other traditions to create a mix of traditional dances and ones unique to our side.
