Leeds Morris Men go digital

Leeds Morris Men in West Yorkshire say: “Like many Morris teams we have not danced, entertained or danced the tradition in 2020 as we would have once done. However we have turned to the digital media to entertain and keep the traditions alive. Our 2020 annual Dales tour, mummers plays and other Morris activities have turned to other forms of production and expression. Below are our latest Christmas videos for your enjoyment.
