Welcome to the Dead Horse Morris Website
It is with great regret & sadness that we have to let you know that Kevin Almond died on Sunday 14th September, after being involved in a motorbike crash. As all those who knew Kev could see, he was a larger than life character, always friendly, and a great asset to Dead Horse Morris. Our thoughts are with Kay, their children & all their friends & family at this tragic time. All those wanting to mark Kev's memory can donate to the Kent Air Ambulance on his behalf at https://www.justgiving.com/Kevinalmond/
About Dead Horse Morris
Dead Horse is a Morris dancing side from Whitstable in Kent, made up of the Dead Horse Morris Men and the new ladies team the Broomdashers. We perform a regional style of the traditional English Morris dance. You can find out more about us here or see what Morris dancing is all about on our introductory page.
We practice during the winter months and perform in the local Kentish towns and villages in the summer, with some outings further afield. If you're interesting in joining us then please get in touch or come and see us dance at one of our events.
You can learn the ways of the Dead Horse by studying our dance page that introduces you to our unique way of dancing. Or why not learn a few shanties from our song page to sing along to at one of our stands.
