Fleur de Lys Morris

Fleurs were taught stave dances by Roy Dommett back in 1976, they continue to dance stave dances along with some Cotswold and border, along with their own Farncombe tradition and music.

Their emblem, the Fleur de Lys or Lily flower, is one possible origin for the name of our County town Guildford ‘The Golden Ford’ referring to the Yellow and Purple Flag Irises that grew around the marshy fords, our kit reflects those vibrant colours.

They dance Stave dances, based on the processional steps of The Friendly Societies, along with Cotswold and Border styles, and also have their own Farncombe Tradition music and dances.

They’re out and about all through the year, dancing at various local Pubs, Fetes and Town events, as well as further afield at Folk Festivals, so see you there!
