Wreckers Border Morris: Should This Much Fun Be Legal?

Hello and welcome

We are Wreckers Border Morris and we're from the Tamar Valley in South East Cornwall. That's the water-filled bit between Cornwall and England.

Blydhen Nowydh Da - Happy New Year!

Some of you may know me as Richard or Mole.  Here we go again but this time it's 2017.  We had an amazing year in 2016 with highlights at Chippenham, Sidmouth and Lyme Regis.

This year we are off to Chippenham, Sidmouth and Lyme again, but we are doing Upton Folk Festival, Scrumpy and Western (Fuelledbycider.com) to play with The Wurzels, a trip to Hayling Island to catch up with our good friends Customs and Exciles and the Beltane Birthday Bash.  We are catching up with all out local friends around Cornwall and Devon as per normal (please check the calendar for dates/time etc).  We hope to catch up with you when we are out and about.

Oil an gwella

Cheers and Out!

Wreckers Morris is proud to be sponsored by Skinners Fine Cornish Ales. Thank you, you lovely people who make delicious ales  which help to keep us going on a long day's dancing, and refresh us wonderfully when the dancing's done and we're enjoying a few tipples of an evening. Cheers!

The Story of Wreckers Morris

Wreckers was born in October 2000 - in a pub! Where else? Border Style Morris was chosen for its flexibility, liveleness and noise! This style comes from the Welsh/English Border Counties.  (This would seem appropriate to our location on the Cornish/English border!) With a great deal of hard work by the founders, supported by Plymouth Morris Men and Maids, Wreckers took off very quickly and had to change meeting halls three times in as many months!

We started our first season by dancing at Black Prince Day, which is based in and around Millbrook, Kingsand and Cawsand. We then went on to have a highly successful season, picking up still more members along the way.

While dancing at The Royal Cornwall Show we were 'spotted' by the organisers of the Rhine Army Summer Show, held in Germany every summer, and were duly booked! This event dominated our second season but we still performed for many different organisations, our popularity growing and growing.

As this trend continues and the side evolves, we are learning new dances and expanding our repertoire, bringing new ideas and styles of dance into the mix.

Our lively dance style and air of fun makes us popular wherever we go.

We rehearse at St Dominick and we perform both traditional and new dances in an ever-evolving assortment.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly bunch and we always welcome new members (or just those who think they might like to "have a go"). We'd love to meet new dancers and musicians at one of our events, or at a weekly rehearsal (Thursdays Oct-May, St Dominick Village Hall from 8pm) .

Dancing Out

In the summer months we dance out on Thursday evenings at venues (ok - pubs) in and around the Tamar Valley and occasionally further afield.

We also perform at festivals around the country ( recent festivals include Upton, Chippenham, Sidmouth, Swanage and    Teignmouth,
