Glory of the West are a morris side comprised of people from all walks of life drawn together by a love of dance and traditional music. It has come to our attention that unfounded links are being made between the morris community and nationalism.

Glory would have been at Polperro Festival this weekend had we been allowed out to play..

Thanks to Great Western Morris, Glory have been nominated to partake in the 2020 Chippenjager challenge - whereby if nominated, the challenge is to take 4 shots (one for every night of Chippenham Festival which didn't take place) and nominate some friends that you would like to share the experience with.

We have obviously partaken in a very Glory-esque way (tea and cake, also approx 1 week late.. but it's good to keep a good thing going, right?).

Our nominations go to all of our friends that we'd have danced out with over the summer but have not had the chance to, who would like to participate. We miss you all!

Great Western Morris (yes we fully expect you to do the challenge again...)
