Our Fringe Events


A Festvial of Morris Dancing

For several years, Cambridge Morris Men have taken part in the Eel Day Celebrations; joining in the procession and then dancing at various points around the city.  This event has become a firm favourite with the participants, so this year we have expanded it by inviting other Morris sides to come and join in the fun. The festival will bring examples of all the different traditions together including Cotswold, Border, Molly, Clog & Rapper.  So expect to see dancing on every street corner throughout the city centre on Saturday 5th May.  More details to follow.
