Morris dance at wedding in 2002

On 20 April 2002 Helmond Morris Men celebrated the 100th anniversary of the birth of the founder, Theo Driessen with a tour of places associated with him. We visited the house where he was born, the church where he was baptised, the place where he went to school, a street named after him and the school where he taught. At the church, there was a wedding in progress so we offered to do a dance for the bride. Our guests for the weekend were the Thaxted Morris Men and their music helped to drown out the church bells. This is the result: FILM

60th Anniversary Weekend 1995

During the weekend 27-28 May 1995 Helmond Morris Men were joined by Thaxted, Utrecht, Silurian and Chester for a weekend of dance. Jonathan Heywood filmed it and you can see the result here

The first Ring Meeting we organised was in 1985. The Saturday evening show was given in the Helmond Theatre. It can be seen HERE
