‘Fool’s Gambit Morris is an energetic, young Cotswold morris team that aims to amaze and impress with our dancing. Dancing mainly in the Fieldtown and Raglan traditions, we enjoy dancing at many events far and wide. Founded in 2010, we have had a busy 5 years, having been invited to the Shrewsbury, Sidmouth, Whitby, Warwick and Bromyard folk festivals, as well as attending many excellent morris weekends of dance.
We are thrilled to have been a part of Banks of Green Willow, a project commemorating the centenary of the Battle of the Somme.’
Banks of Green Willow
Update: The Banks of Green Willow project is now over. Fool’s Gambit is privileged to have been part of the Banks of Green Willow, a project commemorating the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. In 1916, four of Cecil Sharp’s demonstration team died within weeks of each other on the Somme, changing the course of Morris dancing in the 20th century. We aim to celebrate the lives of these men and their contribution to the development of English folk dance.
