The Broadwood Morris Men’s Day of Dance will take place in Horsham town centre once again this year on Saturday May 9.

The event is organised by the Morris Men with support from Horsham District Council.

The Broadwood Morris Men were founded back in 1972 and every year invite other Morris sides from the South and South East of England to join them in this traditional celebration of the Morris.

Graham Hirst, the Day of Dance co-ordinator for the Broadwood Morris Men, said: “We are pleased to have around 20 sides coming to our annual Day of Dance in Horsham town centre this year.”

You will be able to see, and hear, the Morris men and women all around Horsham on May 9, in all of their various colourful costumes.

The day will start with a procession from the Shelley Fountain to the bandstand in the Carfax at 10am. Sides will then disperse to various stands around the town until about 2pm when there will be a ceilidh and barn dance at the bandstand.

Supporting the festival of Morris dancing, Horsham’s Local Produce Market will be going medieval for the day in the Carfax. There will be an inter-stall competition for the best stalls.
