With new members joining all the time, Hemlock Morris has gone from strength to strength, with a number of spots at significant festivals and events during 2009, during which we raised many hundreds of pounds for charity. A full diary of appearances kept us busy throught the Summer of 2010 including the Bedford River Festival, the Twinwoods Rhythm Festival, and A shed Full of Folk... and have already taken bookings for 2015 We also enjoy organising our own invents to mark the annual cycle of the seasons - visit the Diary page to see the events we have coming up.

Our 'Border-style' appearance fools many folk...we look Border but dance predominantly Cotswold Morris, with dances from Bleddington, Adderbury, Moulton, Brackley, Bampton etc..

Hemlock Morris has younger members than your stereotypical Morris Dances side. Perhaps it’s the ‘alternative’ painted faces or gothic-style apparel; either way, we like to think that our take on traditional dances bring a breath of fresh air to what many people regard as an out of date tradition, and that our enthusiasm and obvious enjoyment of what we do brings a smile to the faces of those that come to watch us.

Hemlock Morris practise at The Ent Shed, The Gordon Arms, Castle Road, Bedford. We owe a great deed of thanks to the Landlord and Lady and and all staff at the Gordon Arms for their continued support.

Hemlock Morris are not currently recruiting as we
have a full side as we enter the winter practise season.

However, if you would like to register your interest or would like
to book us for your event please visit the 'Contact Us' page.
