Tuesday 7th September -
Holme Bush cancellation
Due to a combination of circumstances
covid included, we do not have enough
musicians for the dance out at the
Holme Bush Inn this coming tuesday.
A cancellation is a rare event for any
and we apologise for the short notice.
We hope this is the only time we are
forced to publish a bulletin like this.
Stay Safe Everyone
- Hobos Morris
Hobos Morris is a
female border morris side, formed in 1993 and
based in Poole, Dorset.
Our first season, in
1994, coincided with the 50th Anniversary of
D-Day. Major-General Percy Hobart of the 79th
Armoured Division, produced and commanded the
unusual tanks needed for the Normandy beach
landings - affectionately known as Hobos
Funnies! Their regimental colours were red,
black and mustard, and their emblem the Raging
Bull. The name provided us with our colours,
badges and a bit of history. Perfect.
We usually paint our faces as
tigers - for no real reason other than we prefer
it to the traditional black!
