Cleckheaton Folk Festival 2016

Cleckheaton Folk Festival 2016 – Shadow Dancing

The Jockey Morris Men have been active in Birmingham since their formation in 1949. They have performed all over the country and have been proud to represent morris dancing, and the City of Birmingham, in places as far flung as Warwickshire, France, Flanders, Cyprus, Holland and Germany. Our last foreign trip saw us performing at sunrise in the Anderlecht district of Brussels before performing at a folk event in the town of Ninove and a street fayre in Brussels city centre. We like to keep our national folk tradition alive at home and abroad.

If you’ve ever thought that you might like to have a go at morris dancing why not get in touch with us. You will be able to do this by visiting our contacts page. We will be able to supply you with more about information about our group and answer any questions that you may have about Jockey or Morris Dancing in general.

The above photo shows a team of dancers at the momemnt of completion of the dance “Young Collins” – Oddington – at the end of our annual tour of Birmingham City Centre – October 2016. The location was John Bright Street. The weather was fantastic – all day.
