Welcome to the Lincoln BIG Morris festival.
Lincoln's annual festival of traditional (or sometimes not so traditional) dance.
The 2019 festival will take place on Saturday 7th September. We will have about 20 sides dancing in various styles of Morris, including Cotswold, Border, North West, Molly and probably Its Morris Jim But Not As We Know It. Dancing will start at 10.30 am at venues around the city (see the items under the 'Finding Your Way' menu). The dancing will be in 30-40 minute sessions with short breaks between sessions to allow dancers to move from one venue to another. The third session will finish at about 12.30, when the dancers and musicians will break for lunch.
During the lunch break there will be a music session in The Victoria and a song session in The Strugglers.
After lunch, dancing will restart at 2.00 pm but only at the uphill venues so that the sides can all reach the finale without having to run up Steep Hill! The finale will be at Saint Paul's in the Bail, starting at 3.00 pm, with each side dancing a single dance.
August is now upon us so the preparations for the festival are in top gear. Dance venues are booked, posters and leaflets are being circulated and the dance rota for the day is in its first draught. If your side fancy a day dancing around glorious Lincoln just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with some info about your side and we'll add you to the list.
