Welcome to the MMM Web-site

Manchester Morris Men have been dancing since 1930 and dance both North-west Clog Morris and Cotswold Dances.  Over the years, we have danced in many places and at all sorts of events.  On Thursday evenings in summer you may see us dancing outside one of the pubs in the local area, and at weekends we may be away in other parts of the UK or Europe.

The North-west Dances we perform are from Oldham, Mossley, New Mills, Godley Hill, Colne, Medlock, and Abram. And the Cotswold Dances, selected each year by the squire, are from various villages in Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties. These currently include dances from Bampton, Bledington, Bucknall, Fieldtown and Lichfield.

There are currently around 15 active members, and the music for the team normally consists of a melodeon (or two), whistle, concertina and accordion, with the addition of a drum for the North-west dances.

To contact MMM, or ask if we can perform at your event, please John Alexander, the Bagman (Secretary) for MMM.     Alternatively, if you do not have email, phone John on 01925 753641

Where to see us

Winter is our practice season, when we don't dance out much.  If you're interested in trying Morris dancing, you're welcome to come along on a Thursday evening -  we practice at a church hall in Stretford.  We also welcome musicians (men or women). Contact John Alexander (see opposite) for details.
