TALK of Morris Men and images of predominantly white costumes with splashes of colour come to mind.

However, during Horsham’s recent Day of Dance, there was a distinctly ‘goth’ accent to some of the dance groups.

Black faces, black costumes (and even kilts), plus ear piercings and chains through the nose provided a dramatic scene.

Judging by the interest, these morris men from ‘the dark side’ are proving as popular as the more established groups.
