A Brief History of Chapel-en-le-Frith Morris Men

Chapel-en-le-Frith Morris Men formed in September 1975 after a letter to the Buxton Advertiser prompted an initial meeting at the Kings Arms pub. By some miracle we not only found we had an experienced morris dancer living in Chapel-en-le-Frith but also a frustrated accordionist as well. With enough willing beginners we were able to start practising and by December, that same year, were ready for our first public performance at Sandbach Folk Dance Club’s Christmas ceilidh.  The rest, as they say, is history.

And, talking about history, this is the letter that started it all off for Chapel-en-le-Frith Morris Men.CMM Startup Letter
