Welcome to Jackstraws website. We are a women’s Cotswold Morris side based in Farnham in Surrey, with members coming mostly (but not exclusively) from the west half of Surrey and the east half of Hampshire.
We perform dances from the Cotswold traditions of Fieldtown, Adderbury, Ilmington and Upton-upon-Severn, and also some “in the Cotswold tradition” developed by members of the side. We dance out in the summer at fetes, festivals and pubs, often with other teams. A quick scan through our programme will give you an idea of the locations and types of event at which we perform. The latest news can be found on our Facebook page.
We can be booked to perform at fetes, fairs, weddings and other celebrations, contact us to find out more.
We are one of the longest-established women’s morris teams in the country and recently celebrated our fortieth anniversary.
We welcome new members and are always pleased to take enquiries from anyone interested in joining the side, whether to dance or play music. We practice from 8-10pm on Monday evenings during the autumn/winter at the Hale Institute Hall in Wings Road, above the cricket field at Upper Hale, postcode GU9 0HN – contact us to find out about joining our friendly team.
