These regional events are hosted by a collaboration of members of teams of all three morris organisations in the UK – The Morris Federation, The Morris Ring, and Open Morris.

The regional event for the Midlands is in Belper, Derbyshire, on Sat 9th September 2023.  Booings have now closed.  The organisers may be contacted at:
