Wreckers Border Morris

Wreckers are from the Tamar valley in south east Cornwall and they dance in black and Gold Tatters; black trousers or black or Cornish tartan kilt; decorated black hats.

Wreckers was born in October 2000. They border style Morris comes from the Welsh/ English border counties and was chosen for its flexibility, liveliness and noise.

They started our first season by dancing at Black Prince Day, which is based in and around Millbrook, Kings and and Cawsand.

While dancing at The Royal Cornwall Show were ‘spotted’ by the organisers of the Rhine Army Summer Show, held in Germany every summer, and were duly booked. This event dominated our second season but they still performed for many different organisations, their popularity growing and growing.

Their lively dance style and air of fun makes them popular wherever they go.
