By Angela Cole

Christmas is all about tradition - so indulge in a true English tradition and head to a Kent pub to watch Morris dancing this Boxing Day. Here are some to try:

Hartley Morris Men have been performing on Boxing Day since 1969. They will be outside the Black Horse, Stansted, at noon and at the Rose and Crown, Wrotham at 1.15pm. At both venues there will be a performance of the ancient Firle mumming play. Visit hartleymorrismen.org.uk.

Another longstanding side, Headcorn Morris, will be in action from noon at the George & Dragon in Headcorn High Street, and then from 2pm at the King’s Head in Grafty Green. Check headcornmorris.co.uk for more information.

The Seven Champions, who are molly dancers, who black their faces, will be staging their traditional Boxing Day Dance Out at an as yet undisclosed location in the heart of Kent - check thesevenchampions.weebly.com for details.

Whitstable-based Dead Horse Morris, which features the Dead Horse Morris Men and the Broomdashers ladies' team, will be staging their Mince Pie Tour on Boxing Day at various venues around Whitstable. For more, go to deadhorse.org.uk
