Bideford Phoenix Morris
Bideford Phoenix is a mixed morris side, based in Bideford, North Devon. We welcome anyone who would like to join us, whether you have experience of morris dancing or are a complete beginner who isnít sure if morris dancing is for you but would like to give it a try!
We practise every Wednesday evening at the Baptist Church Hall, Bideford from September to April and dance out throughout the summer.
We are a friendly bunch (we think!), so if you would like to come along or would like more information please contact:

The dances we perform mostly come from the villages of the Cotswolds. The origins of these dances are not clear and there are many theories, however we can say that today they form a thriving tradition. We also perform some of the "border" dances that originated in the wild border regions between England and Wales.
We enjoy dancing out during the summer, mostly locally, although we do dance out at festivals countrywide when we can. Locally we dance out at pubs, festivals, fetes and for private events such as birthday parties.
We are available for bookings year round Ė we do get booked up in the summer so the more notice you can give the better. Please contact Carolyn (contact details above) if you are interested in booking us.
