1951 Liverpool Morris Video

A number of years ago, Richard Stapledon interviewed the late Jim Jones and wrote up his recollections to provide a combined history of Liverpool, Wirral and Mersey Morris teams.

When adding the document to this website recently, I re-read it and came across a reference to Liverpool Morris dancing at the International Eisteddfod  in Llangollen in the 1950’s and being filmed by Pathe News.

A few Google searches and a search of the British Pathe website turned up a short preview film of the 1951 International Music Festival featuring Liverpool Morris.

Due to their licensing restrictions we cannot show the video on this page but it can be viewed on the British Pathe site by clicking the above image. Liverpool MM appear from about 40seconds.
