Change of name for Uplyme Morris

The newly-named Lyme Morris will next perform at the switching on of the town’s Christmas lights on November 30

UPLYME Morris has changed its name to Lyme Morris to better represent the wider area the dance group represents. 

For more than 10 years, Uplyme Morris has entertained locals and holidaymakers alike with its trademark fun and energetic style of traditional morris dancing.

Its success has meant that the group is regularly asked to perform across the Lyme Regis region, as well as further afield, so members have agreed to change thje group’s name to Lyme Morris.

The side will maintain its white and green livery and iconic top hats, and will continue to focus on dancing in and around Lyme Regis, supporting local charities with donations each year.

If you would like to help maintain this traditional form of dance, Lyme Morris are looking to recruit new musicians and dancers for the forthcoming dance season.

The side are running taster sessions on Tuesdays, December 5 and 12 from 7pm at its practice venue at Charmouth Scout Hut at Barrs Lane playing field.

In particular, the side is currently looking for a melodeon player to support the musicians.

Lyme Morris’ next events include performance at the switch-on of the town’s Christmas lights on Saturday, November 30 at 5pm, and outside the Harbour Inn on New Year’s Day 2020 from 12noon.
