Morris dancers

Peterborough Morris perform traditional English Morris dances in the Cotswold tradition, a style that reaches as far east as Northamptonshire. The earliest reference to Morris in England is from 1448, so its origins predate this, but it is a thriving tradition in the 21st century. Come and see Peterborough Morris put on a lively and entertaining display outside both pubs.
