Hartley Morris Men
come to your rescue!
Morris dancing is not only great fun, it is a non-competitive activity that keeps you (relatively) fit. Join a world-wide group of thousands keeping one of England’s greatest cultural traditions alive. Dance in some of the most beautiful places in the country.
Come along to our Thursday evenings at some of the nicest pubs in Kent. Join in a dance and in the choruses during the singing session at the end of the evening’s dancing. We sing an amazing range of songs from Folk to Rock via Music Hall, Sea Shanties and back again.
Why not try our Taster evening on the first Thursday in October at St. George’s Hall, High Street, Wrotham TN15 7AB (or any other Thursday practice evening from then through to the end of next April) and see why Morris Dancing is such a great way to spend your time.
What’s even better, the two hour session is absolutely FREE!
Wrotham Square and St George's Church
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.
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.
Come and see us at one of our stands in the North West Kent area, or
