Welcome to the website of the Abingdon Traditional Morris Dancers. Our aim is to keep alive the unique traditions of Abingdon that combine Morris Dancing with the Horns and the Mayor of Ock Street. These traditions certainly go back to the 18th century, and quite probably the morris dancing itself to the 16th century. For more details of this history, see the Brief History section. For some years (and not just recent ones) we have more detailed Diaries and these will be added to in the future.
We are always happy to hear from those that may want to join us. If you are interested then please do contact us – we hold practices during the winter season (October to April) where we are happy to teach new members.
We are available for bookings, mainly in the Abingdon area but further afield if we can manage it. Please note that there is nearly always a fee for our appearance, though it is not always paid in money!
We also do a Mummers Play at Christmas time.
