Morris men bring Night of Dance to Addiscombe, Aug 18

Croydon Night of DanceThe 11th annual staging of the Croydon Night of Dance – a festival of Morris dance – this year will take place on August 18 in Addiscombe.

The event features six Morris sides from around London and the south-east. It starts at the Builders’ Arms, Leslie Park Road at 7.30pm and dances on in a Morris procession to the Glamorgan in Cherry Orchard Road at 9pm.

Croydon has three Morris sides, the North Wood Morris, a Cotswold Morris men’s side;  Old Palace Clog, a women’s clog dancing side; and the Wild Hunt Bedlam Morris, a mixed border Morris side. All will be at the Night of Dance.

Croydon Night of Dance will be raising funds in aid of the Croydon Branch of the NSPCC.

Event Organiser, James Denny said, “We are delighted to be bringing the Night of Dance to Addiscombe for another year. The event is always very well received and gives the public a chance to see the many different kinds of Morris dancing.

“Morris is a traditional form of folk dancing with lots of regional variants but it’s also a great way to meet up with other people, make friends and keep fit.”
