A lovely Cotswold Village – a traditional village fete- a wonderful setting.
The Westminster Morris Men first danced in public on Coronation Day 1953. Since then they have made their home in the City of Westminster in London and have established themselves as one of the leading Morris sides in the Country.
They have a large repertoire of dances, based on the Cotswolds Morris tradition. They specialise in dances collected from Longborough in Gloucestershire.
Their distinctive costume consists of a black and yellow tabard, bearing a portcullis emblem, worn with a white shirt and trousers and a black straw hat with a rosette. They are usually accompanied by their famous Unicorn ( the only live Unicorn in captivity) and he, together with the portcullis, demonstrates their link with the City of Westminster.
They have an Annual Tour of the Cotswolds in July and this year, 2008, they will be performing at the following locations:-
