Pigsty Morris

Pigsty Morris

Pigsty Morris are a mixed gender dance side based in Bristol. They perform traditional and contemporary Cotswold Morris dances from a number of different village traditions. The side practices weekly on a Friday evening throughout the winter months, and dances out from spring through the summer and into the autumn. They take place in events such as, dancing at local pubs, fairs, schools, the Bristol Harbour Festival, and travelling further afield to Wimborne Festival.

Their name comes from an area of the Gloucester Road in Bishopston known as Pigsty Hill, but they have members from a wide area around Bristol.

They are an enthusiastic and energetic group with a wide age range from 16 upwards. Pigsty Morris believe dancing is a great way to keep fit and active. They welcome new members. They meet be on Friday evenings from 8 to 10pm at the Kelvin Players hall on Wesley Road, just off Gloucester Rd in Bishopston BS7 8NY.
