Rag Morris has acquired its own inimitable style over the last 27 years – free-spirited, energetic, colourful, comic, and very rarely normal.

We wear brilliantly coloured rag shirts and bells, inspired by the traditional costume of the Welsh Borders. Our dances come from the Cotswold Hills and the Welsh Borders.

We dance with sticks, hankies, bare hands, and occasionally plastic chickens, to the accompaniment of accordions, melodeons, fiddles, whistles, and drums, and with the assistance of our trusty steed, Rags the Horse.

Our Folk Club holds regular sessions and occasional ceilidhs, and organises trips to festivals and gigs both locally and further afield. New musicians, singers, and hangers-on are always welcome.

Rag Morris is a society of the University of Bristol Union, but membership is open to all.

And, best of all, it's FREE!
