Look out Snettisham, Heacham, Thornham, Brancaster and Wells - here come the King’s Morris
King's Lynn's much-loved morris dancers are polishing their bells and ironing their britches ready to kick off their summer season.
They'll be performing on Easter Monday, April 17, at the Rose and Crown, Snettisham (11.30am); Norfolk Lavender, Heacham (12.30pm) and the Lifeboat Inn, at Thornham (2pm).
On St George's Day, Sunday, April 23, they'll be busting some morris moves at the Jolly Sailors, Brancaster Staithe (12-noon) and the Globe at Wells (1.30pm).
On Monday, May 1, they'll be parading through King's Lynn with the May Day Garland, in one of the town's more bizarre annual events.
Morris dancing dates back donkey's years. They reckoned it was old hat in Shakespeare's time. The King's Morris were formed by aficionados in 1978 to revive the tradition.
