Welcome to the web site of The Britannia Morris Men, Melbourne’s oldest and finest Morris team!
If you want to know all about Morris Dancing, then you have probably come to the wrong spot. There are better sites on Morris in general; a good place to start is Morris dance on Wikipedia.
However, this is the place to read about The Britannia Morris Men! Note: one ‘t’, two ‘n’s.
Just use the navigation slot on the left to find out all about us.
“Home” will always bring you back to this page.
Refer to the “upcoming events” slot on the right to see where we are performing or practicing soon – come and watch us, or join in. The “Join Us” section has more information.
“Mug Shots” is where you get to see the members of the team and find out a bit about the individuals.
In “Regalia” you get to see what we wear, and some other bits and pieces of display.
“History” gives some historical data on the side, and also holds the team log – a record of what we have been up to. This is the best place to find photos of the team.

When he is dancing, the true Morris-man is serious of countenance, yet gay of heart, vigorous, yet restrained; a strong man rejoicing in his strength, yet graceful, controlled and perfectly dignified withal… he is accompanied by a Fool wielding the bladder of a pig which was shot down as it flew by the light of the new moon.
– Cecil Sharpe, with some help from Sir Cedric Blunt
