Winster Morris Dancers date from 1863, or possibly earlier. The noted collector of English Folk Music, Cecil Sharp, visited in 1908 and noted five dances, including The Processional and The Gallop. The all-male side continues to this day.
Winster Morris Dancers can always be seen performing as part of Winster Wakes Week - and on many other occasions through the summer months. Performances in Winster are noted on the Winster Events Diary
