Our Story so far…

Golden Hare Morris held our first practice at Redborne School on 30th October 2017. It was started by members of Redbornstoke Morris after the decision was made to bring the side to a close after 42 years of dancing. Before Redbornstoke bid their farewell in July 2018, they wanted to pass on the dances they had created to a new side.


This new side is open to anyone who would like to learn to Morris dance. So far we have been learning the traditions of Ampthill and Scouthall (pronounced scuth-le), both developed by Redbornstoke Morris. We practised at Redborne School and now we have moved to Steppingley Village Hall. We have been dancing out since 2018/2019 season.


On 11th April 2018, we held our first formal meeting and took our biggest decision yet; deciding on a name. We are known as Golden Hare Morris, based on the book Masquerade, written by Kit Williams, who lived in Steppingley for a period. The Golden Hare, which was Masquerade’s treasure, was found at the Catherine Cross in Ampthill Park. We have used the Golden Hare as a motif, by kind permission of Kit Williams.
