We are MAYDAY Morris - where Folk just got serious...

We will be dancing in Plymouth City Centre on Sunday 14th May as part of the Urban Tree Festival to highlight the recent loss of trees and subsequent eviction of dependent species in Armada Way. We will start at around 2.30 pm on Place de Brest, which is the junction between Cornwall Street and Armada Way. We will then move to other locations in that area - to find us, listen out for our drums!

Why we do it

  • MAYDAY MORRIS are a group of Morris dancers and folk musicians who have come together with a common cause.
  • MAYDAY brings energy to protest and bears witness to loss, injustice, and inequality using a medium that is the epitome of English tradition.
  • MAYDAY aims to reenchant ourselves and others with the beauty and wonder of the world and with our English folk traditions as a route towards living in the right relationship with all of life.
  • MAYDAY dances to drums, voice, and any other instruments that are available.
  • MAYDAY’s kit (costume) and dancing communicate a rebellious pagan spirit alongside an honouring of our country’s workers and their traditions, whilst also signalling that we are in a state of social and environmental emergency.
  • Tickets not required, this is a free, public event!
