Green Man dancing at FradleyThe Members of Green Man's Morris and Sword Club agreed to cease dancing activities as of 14 February 2017. They felt that they were unable to provide a display that reflected the quality that they would wish. This website will remain available for some time to provide information about the Club and to cater for visitors who want to learn more about the Lichfield dances. If you have any specific questions, please contact the Bagman (email contact below).


Green Man at the Lichfield BowerGreen Man's Morris was directly involved in the revival of the Lichfield dances, referenced in documents of the late 18th century, and was appointed "Custodian of the Lichfield Tradition" by The Morris Ring of England. The dances were unseen outside the City of Lichfield until 1954 and are different from the six-man dances of the Cotswolds morris traditions in that they are for 8 dancers.

We have lead the Lichfield "Bower" Procession for the last 60 years. Our 60th Anniversary Card from Three Spires Morris is here >>. Held in May, the event dates back to the yearly inspection of military equipment as demanded by the Statute of Westminster in 1285. More >>

Our music is always played live. Our musicians play pipe and tabor, accordion, concertina and other instruments. More about the pipe and tabor >>
