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.

Black Annis In Leicester

Sunday 6:00pm  3 March 2019

Black Annis will be dancing from 6:00 – 6:20 pm outside the City Rooms, near the entrance to New Market Square  Leicester before attending the special “Always and always facing toward  the Light” event in The square.  Visit the event  website to find out more.

We have created a dance to celebrate Alice and a song, lyrics below if you want to join in.  There will also be a special guest at the event.

Let us celebrate the life of Alice Hawkins
    She made boots and shoes for folk to walk in
Alice and her sisters marching through Leicester
    Standing up for women's rights

Come on said she and stand with me
    We're fighting for equality 
Shouting votes for women, votes for women
    Equal rights and votes for women
Raise your banners and your voices
    Alice Hawkins gave us choices
Standing up for women's rights
