All this entertainment is provided free of charge. We dance because we enjoy it and want to keep this  ancient English tradition alive; however you may be  invited to contribute to the “Luck of the Morris”.  Please feel free to give and to help us ensure that The Morris and associated English traditions prosper.  Dolphin Morris perform on Thursday evenings (and some weekends) throughout the summer in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire  We can also be seen dancing in other parts of the  country as well as making the occasional trip overseas
