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.

We are next out  on Sunday 29th July at Warwick Folk Festival. 10.30am at the Civic church service followed by the procession to the Pageant Gardens at 12.00. Later at 1.15pm at the Rose and Crown in the Market Square and 2.30pm at the Zetland in Church Street.

 

Our next practice night is  Monday  23rd July, we then have a break until the 3rd September, followed by17th September and 1st October. 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 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.

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:
