East Surrey Morris Men’s 90th Anniversary Meeting

Event date:
Friday, July 15, 2016 – 18:00 to Sunday, July 17, 2016 – 15:00
East Surrey are one of the founding members of the Ring. If you haven’t decided yet which Ring meeting your side is attending we are looking for a few more sides to help us celebrate their 90th anniversary.
Striving to produce a high standard of Cotswold Morris, they would welcome sides who share this passion as well as those who can bring the rhythms and steps of other traditional or modern sides to demonstrate the broad diversity of Morris dancing.
This event is a Meeting open to all Ring Members. Female musicians will be welcome. All for £75 per man/women.

The weekend will include a tour of the AONB Surrey Hills and the taste of the local brewers, Tillingbourne. Based in Tadworth/Walton on the Hill with superb facilities that an independent school can offer, followed by the Ring Feast in the evening.

Sunday 17th July there will be a Church service possibly some more dancing and a lunch.

Arrangements are that attending sides can start arriving at our base at:

Chinthurst School, Tadworth, 52 Tadworth Street, Tadworth, Surrey, KT20 5QZ. on Friday 15th July after 6pm.
