Hurst Morris People taster sessions


Hurst Morris People have leapt back into real life action since Covid rules were relaxed this summer. They're now inviting everyone to have a go at their traditional English hobby at two free taster sessions in September, offering:

  • Lots of fun
  • Easy to learn dances, taught by friendly teachers
  • Superb live music
  • Exercise that beats the gym!

The sessions will be on September 23 and 30 from 8-10pm, any Covid restrictions allowing.

Over the summer HuMP has been practising, distanced and outdoors, at St Nicholas School’s large playground in Hurst. A decision on the tasters’ venue will be based on government guidance - but hopefully back at the team's usual base at Hurst Village Hall.

Hurst Morris People Squire (leader) Karen Ricketts from Twyford, said: “Everyone is welcome for fun evenings trying out dancing; you don’t need morris experience. We’re men and women of all ages and backgrounds. At our taster evenings we have a homemade cake break, and then a visit to a Hurst pub. Musicians are also welcome to the tasters to play.”

For more details, email or call Sue at 0776 1222 390. There's lost of information at and you could also follow @hurstmorris on Facebook.

HuMP dances at pubs, schools, fetes, stately homes and folk festivals. They dance the Cotswold
Morris tradition - that’s the one with hankies and sticks.
