Seven Champions

The first revival Molly dance team. Renowned for their deadpan sense of humour, hobnail boots and for dancing to unaccompanied female singers.

Coming on Saturday and Sunday

Straight from the treacle mines of darkest Kent. The original revival Molly team who set the pattern for so many teams that followed them. Added 'lallygag' to the morris vocabulary... (a lallygag is a piece of string tied by ploughboys round their leg, below the knee, in order to stop rats climbing up the inside of your trousers! Their dance style is energetic and precise with sharp movements and a willingness to embrace anything that might entertain an audience.
