Welcome to our home

Black Annis are a group of fun and friendly women who dance Cotswold Morris in the summer and Fenland Molly in the winter. We are available for bookings at outdoor and indoor events, providing a colourful, family-friendly performance (normally danced in slots of 15-20 minutes); we have danced at carnivals, fetes and other local events and performed as a booked side at Towersey, Beverley, Warwick and Chippenham and Cheltenham folk festivals.
We practice on Thursdays at 8pm in Church of the Martyrs Hall, Westcotes Drive, Leicester.
Contact us if you would like to join us or book us for an event.
