Border Morris With Attitude! Chepstow to Newport area

The Widders are a border Morris side from Chepstow, who have danced at festivals through the UK and Europe. Border Morris is a tradition from the England/Wales border. During hard winters farmers would go out dancing to supplement their income. This was a form of begging which was illegal at the time, so dancers took to wearing tatty clothing and blackening their faces to disguise themselves.

We have danced at festivals including the Stonehenge summer solstice, Green Man and Wayfest.
