Well, another season over, but still some events to come this year. Our current provisional programme for the remainder of 2013 can be found by clicking here.
We finished the season with a weekend trip to Brest as part of the large company from Plymouth going over to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Plymouth-Brest Twinning Association. You can see a report of the proceedings by clicking here. Photos of the weekend are available on our Flickr site via the link at the top of this page.
We've had our AGM and elected our officers for the coming year, so what's up next?
The Mumming Season has started and the Plymouth Mummers having completed their first gig on Friday 29th November at the Crooked Spire, Ermington at 9.30pm are next performing on Thursday 12th December 2013, firstly at a private event and then at 9pm at The Bread and Roses on Ebrington Street, Plymouth. See our Mummers Page for details of other performances over the coming weeks.
Practices have started again at CityBus Social Club, Alma Road, Milehouse, on Wednesday evenings from 8pm - 10pm. Any prospective new dancers or musicians welcome. Just turn up!
Plymouth Morris Men have had a great couple of summer seasons recently, including Holland in 2005, a trip to Hungary and Serbia in July 2006 and Jersey in May 2007. In August 2009 we went to south-western France for the 50th Annual International Folklore Festival at Montrejeau. At the end of September we are off to Brest as part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the Plymouth-Brest Twinning association.
Each year we make a donation to a charity and have raised over £5,000 over the last 9 years. On Sunday 21st March 2010 members of Plymouth Morris Men danced their way around the Plymouth Mile course for Sport Relief. We raised over £900! Thank you for your support!
Our nominated charity for 2011 was St. Luke's Hospice, and we donated £700 to them, from our collections last year.
Our nominated charity for 2012 was Plymouth Heartbeat.
More details of our charitable giving can be found on our 'Charitable Donations' page.
