18-39 Workshop Weekend (Sussex)

We know how hard youth networking can be in the Morris world, and want to help with that, so this one is for the younger members…

Are you a younger dancer or musician between the ages of 18 and 39, or will you be in March 2025? Are you keen to meet, dance alongside and get to know other Morris folks of the same age? Would you like to broaden your horizons and try out other traditions and styles of Morris via a fun, immersive workshop weekend, and make some new friends whilst doing it? If so, this is the event for you! Run by younger folk, exclusively for younger folk, we are going to be hosting our very first 18 – 39 mixed workshop weekend Fri 14th-Sun 16th March 2025, featuring workshops on a variety of styles, and would like YOU to come and be a part of it.
