In the small West Oxfordshire town of Bampton (Bampton-in-the-bush) Morris dancing has a very long history, and the Morris is taken quite seriously. Bampton is one of the very few English towns or villages with a unique Morris tradition that has an unbroken history stretching back centuries. The Bampton Morris dances are among the most popular of the dances favoured by revival Morris sides in England and throughout the world. Today Bampton has no fewer than three Morris sides (or teams) representing the tradition.

Welcome to the web home of the Traditional Bampton Morris Dancers where you can learn about the Bampton Morris as embodied in the history and dances of our side.


Whit Monday is coming!

Whitsun and the traditional Whit Monday say of dance for Bampton is approaching and we are getting ourselves in shape, more or less, and the website, too. We are pleased to announce that our guest sides for the evening dancing will be Stanton Harcourt and Thames Valley Morris Men. For more information click on the Whitsun 2019 link above.
