The Earl of Stamford Morris


The Earl of Stamford Morris was formed in 1982 and was named after the Earl of Stamford and Warrington.

The Earl raised no objection as his line died out in 1979! Our badge is based on his crest.

The Earl of Stamford Morris is a mixed dance side (men and women) from the Warrington area and has always been an active member of Open Morris. Our base is the village of Moore - which is what we like to hear shouted after a dance! We have also attracted dancers from a wide area of Cheshire and beyond. At present we have members from as far afield as North Wales, Stoke on Trent, Bolton, Stockport, Comberbach and Marston, as well as the majority from the Warrington and Halton area. Our age range is also wide!

You can see us at events and festivals in the area and elsewhere throughout the year. We are delighted to have been invited to dance at Middlewich Folk and Boat Festival for the sixth year.

We perform mainly in the Cotswold tradition, at present doing dances from Badby, Fieldtown and Lichfield, and a couple of Border dances. We dance in white with black and yellow ribbons and bells, and either hankies or sticks.
