Poacher Morris are Lincoln’s finest and original mixed Border
"We enjoy performing lively and energetic dances,
and encourage new dancers and musicians to join us in fun,
Poacher Morris was formed in 1995 and we take our name from
the song ‘The Lincolnshire Poacher’ and perform the dances
of the Welsh Border tradition in our own “wild and exuberant”
style which is much influenced by Shropshire Bedlams.
As a Border side we carry on the tradition of disguise with our own distinctive colours. Black to represent the border tradition and yellow for the Lincolnshire “yellowbelly”, (the name for a person born and bred within the county!).
Our costume is made up of colourful rag coats and decorated top hats. Throughout the year the team dances at local events, morris weekends and festivals.
