Hartley Morris Men

The Hartley Morris Men are the oldest Morris side dancing in the West Kent area, with our roots going back to the Stansted Morris dancers of 1934 – 39. We perform the ancient and traditional Morris dances of the Cotswold style.

Our performing season runs each year from May until September and usually starts with a spectacular May Day morning performance at dawn at the Coldrum Stones Long Barrow.

During the summer season the side maintains a long standing tradition of dancing at pubs throughout West Kent. Bringing back live folk entertainment to large numbers of people within the community and providing the men themselves with the opportunity to enjoy good ale!

We inevitably end the formal season at our favourite local, the Rose and Crown in Wrotham for a jolly good sing.

In addition to the dancing and singing, over the Christmas period, traditional mumming plays are performed by The Darent Valley Champions in aid of local charities.

We practise in St George’s Hall Wrotham on Thursday evenings throughout the winter (In case you wondered). If any men fancy joining us, rather than just watching us, just come along. You can contact us by phoning +44(0)1622 685960, or email bagman@hartleymorrismen.org.uk
