Earl of Stamford, Clerical Error & Cadi Ha Morris Dancers - Thursday 12th June PDF Print E-mail
News - Music News

We're having our annual Morris bash again this year and this one promises to be particularly good fun with up to three teams dancing!

Clerical Error the mixed Border Morris dancing team and street entertainers return to the Blue Bell Inn, Halkyn with Cadi Ha, a new Cotswold Morris side from Bangor University and our old friends Earl of Stamford from Warrington.

All are welcome to enjoy the entertainment, ciders and real ales.

 Here a some youtube videos of the event.

Clerical Error are a team of dancers and street entertainers who formed to resurrect a style of Morris Dancing indigenous to the Welsh/English border known as Border Morris.

Clerical Error also perform street entertainment in the form of Mummers Plays, Magic/Tricks, Juggling, etc. Their Mummers Plays are based on traditional stories whose origins are in the North Wales area. They are performed during intervals and as solo acts.

Clerical Error have performed on S4C, appeared with Max Boyce, on stage at Theatre Clwyd and regularly attend events, both national and local.

Earl of Stamford Morris was formed in 1982. The side was originally called The Earl of Stamford and Nancy's Fancy. (The latter for the women and named after the then landlady of the King William - the local visited after practices on Tuesdays.) The first dance out was at a pub in Altrincham in November 1982. The side has always been an active member of Open Morris .

It was named The Earl of Stamford Morris after the Earl of Stamford and Warrington (and Lord Delamere). So even though the group has moved from Wilmslow to Moore near Warrington they are still within the "catchment area" of his name. The Earl raised no objection as his line died out in 1979! Their badge is based on his crest. One of the founder members lived at the Earl's seat at Dunham Massey — he wasn't titled, merely son of the NT Administrator! The original EOS logo featured a skull and crossbones.
