Grimsby Morris Men were formed back in the dark ages (1967) and, after a bit of practice, made their first appearance in public at the Lifeboat Hotel on 21st December 1967. The Lifeboat is, alas, no longer with us but Grimsby Morris Men are still here and still dancing (and boaring!). As this is our fiftieth year we intend to do lots of celebrating.
The celebrations will start on the 49th anniversary of the first dance-out, 21st December 2016 and will continue through to the 50th anniversary on 21st December 2017. There'll be lots going on between those dates, including dance-outs with friends from around the region, celebrations at the Cleethorpes Folk and Cider Festival, a (proposed) weekend of dance in July and lots of other stuff. Our website manager is posting the events, at least in outline form, on the site. This job should be completed by the end of the first week in December and the listing will be updated as the details roll in.
We want lots of folk to help us celebrate and hope to be joined by other sides, former members or friends of the side and the general public wether you've seen us before or not. Come along and join in the merry-making.
