Rutland Morris are well under way with our Christmas programme. We have already danced at the Stamford Christmas Fair, and also at Christmas in Uppingham.
On Thursday December 13 we will undertake our annual Christmas 'Mummers and Dance' tour, visiting The White Lion at Whissendine at 7.30; The Wheatsheaf at Langham at 8.30 and the Grainstore at Oakham at 9.30; we will perform our world famous (well nearly) Mummers play at each venue. All times are Morris approximates!
In keeping with a forty year and more tradition we will also perform on Boxing Day, at the Horse & Jockey Manton at 11.00am, the Market Place in Uppingham at Noon, and the Crown in Uppingham at 1.00pm. As usual we will perform 'border dances' from the English - Welsh borders, and perform our Mummers play again, at which those regulars in the audience will be welcome to join in with the words, and don't worry … St George doesn't die!
Collections from these events will, as usual, go to a local Rutland charity.
