 King John's Morris Men




King John's Morris Men perform mostly Cotswold morris and, from time time, North West and Border morris and a mummers' play, in and around Southampton, and often further afield.

We are actively seeking new members - please contact the Squire or the Bagman if you would like to join us.

Following the success of our 2020 virtual mummers' play, as featured on BBC South Today on Friday 18th December 2020 and in the Hampshire Chronicle on Thursday 17th December 2020, we again produced a virtual mummers' play for 2021

As, for some reason, we haven't been able to dance, sing or play "live" very often recently, we have also produced a CD of our songs and music - Pig Sticking, which is available at the very reasonable price of £5.00 plus postage and packing.

In normal times, our practices are on Mondays from 8:00 p.m. between September and April at the Scout Hut, 44-50 Brickfield Road, Portswood, Southampton SO17 3AE, and normally dance out at suitable venues, usually on a Thursday evening, between May and August, and at various other events. For the avoidance of doubt, the Brickfield Lane Scout Hut is not our address - please do not send correspondence there.

Given the recent pandemic restrictions, we were not been able to dance out as normal from March 2020 onwards, nor were we able to hold our usual practices until the Autumn of 2021, when we restarted them at the Scout Hut in Brickfield Road. It is clear that future events are likely to to be disrupted at short notice by the ongoing pandemic, so please check the events page regularly and especially before making a journey.

The illustration above and the cartoons at the end of each page are by very talented David Hutchings - one of our resting members.
