Mid-2001: a group of friends drunkenly decide to start a women’s Cotswold morris team and surprise themselves by actually doing so in the cold light of day. They (not so drunkenly) decide to call themselves Pecsætan, a name which no-one understands and few can pronounce.

They finally emerged as a fledgling side in summer 2002, since when they have set about the arduous task of having a fantastic time and dancing a lot, at pubs and events in their local Sheffield, at festivals around the country and abroad.

Summer 2017

The spring and summer are filling up nicely, including with festivals Upton, Cleckheaton and Warwick, and a visit to Sheffield from abroad: the Minnesota Traditional Morris Men have booked in a dance out to celebrate their Independence Day on the 4th of July.

Then we are off to Guernsey in September – hosted by Bells and Broomstick‘s for their Weekend of Dance.

Some nice things people have said about us:

“It’s really encouraging to see a young, energy packed, precise side.”
“Your lines looked like they were laser guided”
“I’m impressed – and I’m not usually impressed”
“I usually don’t like women’s Cotswold because it can either be too butch or too frilly/prissy but you were neither – really good!”
“Still not sure about the hook legs but the RTBs were perfect.”
“I never usually watch the whole of morris displays but it was excellent & I watched the whole thing”
“you’re the best women’s Cotswold morris team I’ve ever seen”
“bloody great”
