Here is the information on the performers that we have booked for 2016. There is a huge range of talent for you to enjoy. Many of the acts have given their time for free so please come along and support them.
Wyvern Jubilee Morris are an all male morris dancing side based in Yeovil, Somerset, England.
The team was formed in 1977 by employees of Westland Helicopters Ltd, for a one-off performance as part of the Queen's silver jubilee celebrations. Initially the team was called Westlands Jubilee Morris.
Following the success of this inaugural performance it was decided to keep the team going and, as more people were drafted in from outside the company, the association with Westlands was dropped and the name changed to Wyvern Jubilee. Our 30th anniversary in 2007 was marked by a number of special events including a birthday weekend dancing with many Morris sides from around the country and a foreign tour.To learn more about us visit www.wjm.org.uk
