JMO 20th Anniversary – Regional Day of Dance 2023 (Chester)

In 2023 the Joint Morris Organisations are running a series of regional days of dance to celebrate 20 years since the national Day of Dance in Trafalgar Square in November 2003 which was held to celebrate the exemption of “morris dancing” from the Licensing Act 2003.

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 North West is in Chester on Sat 23rd September 2023.  This is a walking and dancing tour of Chester between 09:40-16:00.  Contact the organisers at:
