Morris men raised more than £1,000 for charity during their 30th annual tour of Ewell on Boxing Day.

Ewell St Mary’s Morris Men processed through Ewell Village and performd a traditional midwinter folk play, known as a mummers' play.

The tour supported the Epsom Mayor’s charities - the Sunnybank Trust, Meru and Epsom Phab.

Squire Nigel Bird said: “Our day started with a private performance for the residents of Priory Court care home.

This Is Local London:

“Blessed with fine weather and the benefit of a complete closure of Ewell High Street we attracted large crowds including a group of visitors from Copenhagen.

“Our Christmas dances, many to traditional seasonal music, were well received, and at one point our musicians were assisted by a large band of child percussionists!

“The day concluded with a magnificent performance of our traditional Mummers' Play at the Upper Mill followed by carols and music in the Wheatsheaf.”

Anyone interested in joining the morris men can to drop into sessions at 8.30pm on Thursday January 16 and Thursday January 23 at 2nd Ewell Scout HQ, 106a West Street, Ewell.
