Plum Jerkum Border Morris of Warwick

Plum Jerkum are the town of Warwick's very own mixed Border Morris side! We are now practicing alternate  Monday evenings,7.30-9.30pm, in the Northgate Methodist Church Hall on the corner of Barrack Street and Northgate Street in Warwick Town Centre. Our next practice evening is Monday 1st November.

 

 After our successful outings to Warwick Victorian Evening in November 2019 and  Alvechurch New Years Day and our Wassail day in Long Itchington in January 2020 we had an 18 month gap due to the pandemic but practice nights have now resumed on a fortnightly basis.

 

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
