‘Ancient Men’ morris dancers tour North Somerset, 24th-29th July

Ancient Men on tour in Fairford, Gloucestershire, in 2002

Our touring alter-egos the Ancient Men are delighted to be visiting North Somerset this Summer.

We have toured in Somerset twice before – first in 1965, and more recently in 1979.

We look forward to experiencing the dramatic scenery of the Mendip hills, absorbing the mystical atmosphere of ancient monuments, visiting the many historic towns and villages – and of course, appreciating the local cider.

From our base near Wrington, our tour takes us from Wells and Glastonbury in the South, to the cities of Bristol and Bath in the North. And at the end of a busy and strenuous day, don’t be surprised to see us retiring to the nearest pub for a well-earned drink and a musical session. You are very welcome to join us!

There’s also a facebook event for the tour here, which you are welcome to join, and to share with anyone who may be interested.
