Plum Jerkum Border Morris of Warwick

Plum Jerkum are the town of Warwick's very own mixed Border Morris side! We practice most alternate 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. Our next practice is now on the 2nd September.

PJ dance in the Border Morris tradition which originated in the border counties of England and Wales. We uphold the tradition of wearing colourful rag jackets, and have the option of wearing face makeup as a form of disguise.

 

 After Warwick Folk Festival (25-28th July) we will have a break for August, recommencing practice nights on the 2nd September followed by 16th September, 30th September and 14th October.

 

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

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
