Welcome to the online home of one Somerset’s hidden entertaining gems,
The Chalice Morris Men
Formed almost 50 years ago, Chalice Morris have been entertaining many parts of Somerset and beyond with their dancing skills in the Cotswold tradition of Morris Dancing. However this is only part of what makes The Chalice Morris team what it is.
The team has a special friendship and camaraderie that all members of the team add to and we recognise the backing we all receive from our families which enhances their community spirit.
Chalice have a long and varied history and it would take too much time at this point but over the period of time we will cover many of the historical elements that make up our story. It started in the heady days of the early 1970’s when Morris Dancing was taught in schools and teams formed in schools went on to develop into adult teams,
Many of the dances we do are in the Cotswold tradition with many dances from Oxfordshire villages such as Adderbury, Bampton, Headington and Fieldtown.
Where to find us
From September to April Chalice can be found at practice at Brent Knoll Village Hall (Brent Street, Brent Knoll, Highbridge, TA9 4EH) and are always keen for new members either dancers or musicians.
Chalice normally dance out during the summer months, traditionally starting in May until August visiting venues and hostelries in towns and villages throughout Somerset.
During the coming months we will be bringing you more news regarding Chalice and its upcoming activities, and if you need further information please use email links below.about:blank
