Ashdown Forest Morris Men perform the traditional Morris dances from the Cotswold counties of England. Our repertoire varies from year to year, and the current version can be found here.

Some of us are also members of the World Famous Ashdown Mummers, performing a traditional Sussex mummers play at Yuletide each year and (very) occasionally dancing Border Morris and some of the seldom-seen Sussex dances in the summer months.

NEW MEMBERS ALWAYS WELCOME! Come along to an AFMM practice session, happening every Wednesday evening at 8.30pm from the third Wednesday in September until St. George's Day (23rd April). At the Vicarage Rooms, Holy Trinity Church, Colemans Hatch, Nr. Hartfield (TQ450338). Or contact The Bagman. Or come along and meet us anytime during the dancing season (follow the Programme links below). No experience necessary - other than of buying beer, anyway.

AFMM's 2016 Programme is here with pictures from recent events.
