  • Styx of Stroud

  • Styx of Stroud is a mixed Border Morris side founded in 2012 to perform traditional and contemporary dances in the Border style. They wear tattercoats, predominantly black, but with flashes of red and green to reflect the felt-making heritage of their home town of Stroud in Gloucestershire. Their faces are blackened to honour the original Border dancers who would blacken their faces with soot as a disguise to avoid prosecution for begging.
