The Morris Federation and Mortimer’s Morris extend a warm welcome to all members of the Federation to join us in a day of dance in Nottingham on Saturday 24 September 2016, followed by the Morris Federation AGM at 4.30pm (4pm sign-in) at the Canalhouse.
Our base for the day will be the function room above the Canalhouse, 48-52 Canal St, Nottingham, NG1 7EH; telephone 0115 955 5060. We will have the function room for the whole day and this will be where you need to register in the morning (please aim to arrive between 09.30 and 10.00), and will be the venue for the AGM in the afternoon. The function room is wheelchair-accessible via a lift.
All dance spots are close to the city centre and within easy walking distance from the Canalhouse and from each other. Mortimer’s Morris stewards will show you the way.
There will be a lunch break in the schedule and sides can make use of one of the many eating establishments in the city centre.
There will be a ceilidh in the evening (at the same venue) with the well-known ‘Peeping Tom Ceilidh Band’, with Martyn Harvey as caller; a chance to wind down and enjoy good company. Places at the ceilidh are strictly limited and will be sold on a first come first served basis.
The Canalhouse is a canalside pub in a former Fellows Morton and Clayton canal warehouse dating from 1894 (with a canal arm actually entering the bar area). It specialises in real ales and ciders, as well as stocking over 250 world beers. Food is available and the pub have indicated that they would not be averse to music sessions in the bar. The pub is less than a quarter of a mile from Nottingham railway station and from the Station Street tram stop. Note that there is no car parking at the pub.

Please note that applications to the day of dance are now closed, but all members are still welcome to come and watch the dancing and to join us at the AGM.
