All Things Morris – 6th & 7th July 2024

  • Each day of the weekend has a major event and there will also be other themed events taking place around the town. On both Saturday and Sunday there will be Morris dancing around the seafront and harbour from Morris sides who are visiting not just from around the area but from across the UK.

  • In 2023 – 10 Morris sides came to dance – they came from as far afield as the Isle of Wight & Oxfordshire as well as Cornwall and the wider Devon including local sides, Ilfracombe Red Petticoats, Borderline Morris from Barnstaple & Bideford Phoenix. On both Saturday and Sunday there was Morris dancing around the seafront and other areas of the town.

    The activity started on Saturday at 10.30am with a parade of dancers from the Pier to the Seafront and with dancing all afternoon. On Sunday also there was our classic & vintage vehicle show ‘Morris & Friends’ all along the seafront with the presentation of prizes at 3pm. The winning Morris was a 1937 Morris 8, Series 2 four door saloon.

    There were food and craft stalls on the Seafront. Look out for the 2024 event.

    This event is free and is brought to you by Events 4 Ilfracombe. The full daily schedule will be published nearer to the event.
