Christmas Tour

Only four more practices in 2022, so there is still time to come and join us.

The Christmas tour is on Wednesday 14th December and likely to be around Sloane Square area, more news to follow on that.

We return in 2023 on Wednesday 11th January.

New practice season

Last night was our first practice of the season and also an open practice. We were delighted to see a couple of new faces and they may even be back next week!

Don’t worry if you missed the open practice, we would love to see new dancers next week. We meet at St John’s Church Hall, 18 Hyde Park Crescent, W2 2QD from 8pm (or if you are a bit early, at the Victoria, 10a Strathearn Place, W2 2NH).

Open Practice 21st September

Following the unavoidable cancellation last week, we are holding our open practice this coming Wednesday, 21st September from 8pm. Come and try morris dancing. St John’s Church Hall, 18 Hyde Park Crescent, W2 2QD. Nearest stations are Lancaster Gate, Paddington, Edgware Road.

Open Practice 14th September CANCELLED

URGENT UPDATE:
The open practice planned for this evening has had to be postponed to 21st September.
The hall has become unavailable to use due to activities around the demise of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
