Malkin Morris, based in Roughlee near Pendle, Lancashire, have been awarded a grant by The Morris Federation for the purchase of a portable Maypole to be used to teach maypole dancing in schools.

Malkin Morris specialises in researching, performing and promoting the dances and tunes of Burnley, Pendle, Hyndburn and the Ribble Valley in Lancashire. They offer workshops to schools and community organisations on north west processional morris clog dance, step dance, and local tunes.

In particular, Burnley has its own maypole songs.
