LINCOLN'S FINEST & ORIGINAL MIXED BORDER MORRIS SIDE
Poacher Morris was formed in 1995 and we take our name from the song 'The Lincolnshire Poacher' and perform the dances of the Welsh Border tradition in our own exuberant style.
As a Border side we carry on the tradition of disguise with our own distinctive colours. Black to represent the border tradition and yellow for the Lincolnshire "yellowbelly", (the name for a person born and bred within the county!) Our costume is made up of colourful rag coats and decorated top hats.
Throughout the year the team performs 'The Morris' (the original street dance) at pubs and public spaces around Lincoln, for local community events, and at festivals.
In non-Covid times, we meet weekly to practice, to teach and develop new dances in the tradition. We meet 19:45 to 21:30 on Thursdays at the Methodist Church Hall, 175 Burton Road, Lincoln, LN1 3LW. New dancers and musicians are especially welcome - no experience necessary!
