Icknield Way Morris Men are a nationally known Morris dancing side that perform at festivals, weddings, parties and shows all over the country. We are mainly found dancing in Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Wiltshire.
We perform traditional Morris dances from Oxfordshire villages. We also perform all dances recovered from the Stanton Harcourt tradition for which we are the guardians. We have many musicians and can provide all round entertainment for many occasions.
We are always pleased to welcome new members.
"They dance for joy. And joy represents the true spirit of England"

Launch of our New Site
We have just launched our new site that has now been optimised for smartphones and tablets. Please be aware we are still migrating pages (primarily from the Photo Album and Gallery) from the old site. There will no doubt be some teething troubles but we ask that you please be patient whilst these are resolved. Hopefully, this will lead to a better viewing experience for users of all devices.
