Herring Gals is very much a family affair. Wives and daughters of Grimsby Morris Men, we were tired of watching them have all the fun so we made a team of our own.
We have 3 sets of mothers and daughters and one set of sisters which makes practices interesting! We dance North West morris and use garlands, sticks, sllngs and handkerchiefs.We have been to many festivals and events in places such as Scarborough, Sowerby Bridge and Hull. This year we will also dance at York and Lincoln.
Our dresses are identical except for the inserts in them which are tailored to our interests, from Alice in Wonderland to musical notes and dressmaking.
