Hexham Morris

Hexham Morrismen and the Hexhamshire Lassses are two closely associated teams of dancers.  Equally at home in Hexham or Hungary, they are one of the most experienced, versatile and accomplished exponents of the ancient art of English Morris Dancing. The teams dance separately, but mostly appear together to entertain and bring traditional English dances to Hexham and further afield.

Alison Ross - 1937-2022

Hexhamshire Lasses are sad to report the death of Alison Ross on Thursday 17th June 2022. Alison danced with the team for 23 years before hanging up her hat in 2018 . She was a much valued seamstress who tirelessly made all our dresses, decorated our hats and garlands. When she wasnt dancing she would carry the hat around, talk to people and collect donations for the teams. Alison was diagnosed with a brain tumor several months ago. We are comforted in the knowledge that we were able to visit and dance for her just a few weeks ago which brought back some happy memories.
Alison also volunteered relentlessly for Tynedale Hospice.
We will miss her very much.

Simon Gillow


Hexham Morrismen are very sad to report the death on Saturday 29th January 2022 of Simon Gillow. Simon danced with the team for 30 years and was one of the popular stalwarts of the side. Some will remember him as the fool of the team, engaging with the audiences wherever we went.  Simon was diagnosed with cancer just over 2 years ago and bravely battled with the short prognosis of 6 months.  Simon will be missed by all who knew him. We send Rebecca, the children and family our deepest condolences.
