CRMM WINTER ‘21 “Dancing Again” Update

We are back to practicing for the winter in our usual location - Henfield Catholic Church Hall, and are welcoming men wanting to have a go at Morris Dancing, and both men and women musicians. Email the Bagman (click here), click on Join Us above, contact us via Facebook, or just turn up from 8pm at the address in the flyer above.

We had been practicing outside our old practice hall in Henfield for about 8 weeks, joints creaking and spring missing from our steps, wondering if we were making progress and hoping we’d dance out again.  With the loss of key musicians and other absences we were delighted when we turned out 9 dancers and 1 musician in Bridport, able to dance a good selection of our core dances, including some from our own ‘Chanctonbury’ tradition. We’ve since danced out at several Sussex pubs, and now have some private bookings.We will be ensuring we can revive our Mummers Play for the Christmas period. The Doctor has a particular role to play here we feel…

Please come back here for more news of our slow revival, and we look forward to seeing many of you as circumstances and regulations permit!!!

WE’RE BACK PRACTICING, seeking and welcoming new members, and planning our programme into 2022…

We’re distributing the flyer below

We danced out in public for the first time in 20 months (Since Apple Howling in January 2020) as guests of BRIDPORT FOLK FESTIVAL 2021, in mid-August.


A wonderful set of photos has come in from Helen and Stephen Jones, of Dorsetbays Photography, a few of which we are showing here with our grateful thanks.

Sad news as we have lost the last ‘active’ founding member of Chancs - Jim Hoare.

Welcome to our Website.

Our programme for dancing out in public during 2022 is being created now.   Our Boxing Day was a great success with a large crowd at both venues. Here is a selection of the photos taken and sent in to us…

Our thanks to Dom Wilton for all of these photos

 APPLE HOWLING SATURDAY 8th JANUARY 2022, 6pm start

Our Apple Howling (Wassail) had to move this year as our previous hosts at Mill Farm (Wobblegate) were unable to accommodate us in 2022.

Our Howling was a great event, despite the awful weather!   If you were there and took any photos please
