The Chalice Morris Men

After a roaring success at last weekend’s WSM Sea Shanty Festival, (see attached links), next Thursday there will be an evening of what promises to be absolute entertaining delight at The Criterion, W.S.M. There are then performances at The Greyhound, Stogursey, and what should be a stonking good evening of dance and song on a welcome return to The Old Kings Head, Worle. Something to really look forward to. 🍺😎.

Chalice will finish August with performances at this year’s Axbridge Pageant over the Bank Holiday weekend, a very prestigious occasion more of which can be discovered on the website: https://axbridgepageant.com/

Breaking News! ………..Saturday 3rd September, Chalice Morris will be performing at the Burnham-on-Sea Festival from12.00pm. They will be followed by Taunton’s very own Sweet Coppin. This will be one of this year’s last performances so it promises to be a very entertaining show. Follow the link for more information: http://www.bosfest.co.uk/

We are fast approaching the end of the dancing season, and Chalice MM will be looking to keep members numbers up, so they will happily talk to you about membership of this elite group. So, if you feel you could benefit from healthy exercise, would enjoy a good social life and have been entertained by what you have seen, please talk to any of the group about joining.

Morris Minor hopefully will be appearing at The Vaults, Weston-Super-Mare, Wednesday 7th September, 2022. https://www.thevaultsbar.co.uk/ An event not to be missed!! 🍻

A gallery of some of this years performances appear in the link to Chalice At Play.

Where to find us

From September to April Chalice can be found at practice at Brent Knoll Parish Hall (Brent Street, Brent Knoll, Highbridge, TA9 4EH) and are always keen for new members either dancers or musicians.

Chalice normally dance out during the summer months, traditionally starting in May until August visiting venues and hostelries in towns and villages throughout Somerset. During the coming months we will be bringing you more news regarding Chalice and its upcoming activities, and if you need further information please use email links below.

Formed almost 50 years ago, Chalice Morris have been entertaining many parts of Somerset and beyond with their dancing skills in the Cotswolds tradition of Morris Dancing. However this is only part of what makes The Chalice Morris team what it is.

Many of the dances we do are in the Cotswold tradition with many from Oxfordshire villages such as Adderbury, Bampton, Headington and Fieldtown. See more notes in our Chalice at Fifty page.
