ABOUT US

FLEUR DE LYS MORRIS were set up during the folk revival in 1976, we dance Stave, Cotswold and some Border dances. Our emblem the Fleur de Lys or Lily flower, is one possible origin for the name of our County town Guildford ‘The Golden Ford’ referring to the Yellow and Purple Flag Irises that grew around the marshy fords, our kit reflects those vibrant colours. We dance Stave dances (back in the day taught to us by Roy Dommett), based on the processional steps of The Friendly Societies, along with Cotswold and Border styles, we also have our own Farncombe Tradition music and dances.

You will find us out and about all through the year, dancing at various local Pubs, Fetes and Town events, as well as further afield at Folk Festivals, so see you there!

We can be booked for private events, Fetes, Parties, Weddings, so if you are looking for something a bit different, get in touch to ask about our rates.
