Perth Morris Men 40th Anniversary Ale – a big success

The 40th Anniversary Ale was a resounding success.  As can be seen from the picture above and following this hyperlink Ale  quite a few sides were represented.  Also see – Flyer_Forrest Place_Final

Before the Ale there were well wishes from other sides including this card from Nor’West Arch – see Happy Anniversary from_NWArch Also well wishes came from as far away as the Forrest of the Dean Morris Men (Thomas Mockford) – See Stein and from closer to home this card from the Mad Tatters Morris (a Perth Border side) – see Happy 40th from Mad Tatters Morris

Lots of good feedback was received and typical of the feedback is this one received from the Squire of the Australian Morris Ring (Tim Beckett)- see Tim’s_Feedback

To see what the Adelaide Morris Men thought of it – see Headline

For Bill Parker’s report on the Ale see –  What do you do when you are 40?

For some Photos – see Photos

There was a requirement to present Limericks at the Ale itself.  Neil, Marilla and 5 year old Lucy Cooper from Red Raven contributed the following:

Merry Christmas (2014) and a Happy New Year (2015)

The Perth Morris Men would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2015.

It has been a huge 40th Anniversary Year for us.  Some of the highlights include a 40th Anniversary Dance with the Fair Maids of Perth and the Mad Tatters Morris in Hay Street in March, dancing as a display side in Canberra at Easter and holding a 40th Anniversary Ale in September.  As well as this there were other events such as the annual “Down South Tour”, Fairbridge Festival, Moondyne etc.

 

 

Perth Morris Men UK Tour

Following our attendance at the Adelaide Ring Meeting in 2013 we were invited to join the Morris Ring.  One of the requirements is that we “dance in” at a Ring Meeting.  Most of the “Ring Meetings” occur in England so the decision was made to go on tour to the UK.

Organisation has occurred and our Tour Itinerary is as below:

While we are overseas having a good time Robert Bannister 08 9227 9524 will be Acting Squire and wlll be contacted at squire@perthmorrismen.org

UK Tour – a great success

The recent UK Tour was a great experience for all concerned.  For  a brief overview see Event Itinerary.   For some photos – see UK Photos and for some videos – see UK Videos.  

Firstly we experienced great hospitality and a well run Ring meeting at Thaxted.  Some of the highlights of that weekend, as well as “dancing in” to gain full membership of the Morris Ring include performing the Offertory dance at Thaxted Church on the Sunday morning.  Refer to the Morris Ring’s Bagman’s Newsletter for more details of the weekend – see Newsletter No 95.  More reports about the weekend (& our involvement in it) can be found in the Morris Ring Circular No 72

After the Thaxted weekend our next stop was Nottingham where we danced with the Foresters Morris Men The weather for that evening may have been wet but we were warmly welcomed by our host.

Next (Morris) stop was Norwich where we danced with the Kemp’s Men outside the Cathedral and then outside the Ribs of Beef.

Next stop was Shere near Guildford where the Pilgrim Morris Men made us very welcome at the White Horse and also the William IV in Little London.

Finally it was off to Wrotham for the Hartley Ale and the Hartley Morris Men did an excellent job with the organisation of a great event.  As well as lots of good dancing the voices got a bit of exercise too culminating in a singing session in Penshurst Place.

National Folk Festival 2016

Perth Morris Men are part of the entertainment at the 50th National Folk Festival at Easter.  We will be a street side this time.  Back in 2014 we performed as a Display side.  For some photos see Photos NFF 2014 

Christmas Foot Up

For our last event for the year the Perth Morris Men will gather at the Northbridge Brewing Company in kit for some dancing and drinks.

Merry Christmas (2015) and Happy New Year (2016)

The Perth Morris Men would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

It has been another big year for us and the highlight has got to be the England Tour (scroll down for details.) or click UK Tour.

On the home front we haven’t exactly been slack either dancing at Fairbridge Festival, Guildford Heritage Festival,  Moondyne Festival,  Mandurah Crab Festival, Zig Zag Festival and a couple of Best of British events as well as a St George’s Day function to name a few.
