The Helsinki Morrisers are a thoroughly mixed(up)Morris Dance side started in 1995 in downtown Annankatu. The first performance took place on a sunny summer evening at the British Embassy, from where the sycamore logo comes.

Since 1996 we have been active members of the Arctic Morris Association along with Eken Morris from Stockholm. The MiniAle held in August 2013 in Helsinki was at least the 13th meeting! See here for pics of the Ale, courtesy of visitors from Salisbury, UK, Sarum Morris. A BIG THANKS to Eken dancers for their music, humour and dances.

For practices we continue to appreciate the hospitality of the Finnish-British Society (now downtown in Frederikinkatu 20 - p.+3589 68770240) - first Fridays at 6 and and third Sundays afternoon. Over the years local venues have included Tavastia Klubi, Helsinki Railway Station, Kallio Flower Festival, as well as Kaustinen and Rääkylä Music Festivals, and more such as on the ice, or Morris on Ice video

NEXT ACTION: Autumn practising (x2 monthly, see above) in the hospitable premises mentioned above - Fredrikink 20A.

We will probably still be doing dances of the same type as we did at Kuopio Dance Festival

Current styles include a mix of Border(Shropshire Bedlams), Molly(Ousewash and Gog Magog), Cotswold (via Eken Morris) and Helsinki traditions. See also a short video of Helsinki Morrisers performing in St Petersburg in June 2013
