Plum Jerkum Border Morris of Warwick

Plum Jerkum are the town of Warwick's very own mixed Border Morris side! We practice most  Monday evenings, 8.00-10.00pm, in the Northgate Methodist Church Hall on the corner of Barrack Street and Northgate Street in Warwick Town Centre. Please check our website for practice dates though at present these and our dance outs are cancelled until further notice following government guidelines. In the meantime check our facebook page, link at bottom of this page, to see our efforts for 'Lone Morris', May Day etc.

 

 After our successful outings to Warwick Victorian Evening,  Alvechurch New Years Day and our Wassail day in Long Itchington.

Practice nights are now  cancelled until further notice because of the virus alert. Diary dance outs are also on hold.

 

Potential new members age 16 to 70+ always welcome to give it a try on our practice nights. No  previous experience required!

PJ dance in the Border Morris tradition which originated in the counties close to the border of England and Wales. Mainly Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire.

Border Morris is a winter tradition but nowadays you can see us all year round at many local and national events and festivals. In early January we can be seen in the village of Long Itchington on our Annual Wassail Tour where we are seen to drive 'evil beasties' from the fruit trees to promote a good harvest for the next year (for even more Plum Jerkum!)

We are located at:


Methodist Church Hall

Barrack Street

Warwick
