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.
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.
