Black Pig Border was formed in 1986 in Langley Mill/Eastwood on the Nottingham and Derby border. We perform our own style of Border Morris, including both traditional dances and some of our own invention. We are a mixed group, of both female and male dancers and musicians, who wear brightly coloured tailcoats and top hats; all festooned with feathers, flowers, ribbons and bells.

Latest News

June 2020: With most of our events cancelled due to the Covid-19 crisis, please check regularly back here for updates.

In the light of other recent events, we would remind readers that we ceased to be a 'black face' side in 2019. Black Pig Border has *never* condoned any form of racism, or any other negative 'isms. We are just a group of dancers and musicians, of any race, colour, age, size, sexual persuasion etc. simply out there to entertain, and have fun, at no-one's expense but our own!

March 2020: The correct web address is now www.blackpigborder.uk - ie with no '.co'. This is the URL you should bookmark - regardless of what it may say in your browser's address line!

Note: We always try and respond to enquiries within a day or so but the internet can be fickle so, if you haven't had a reply to something, please try again. We never knowingly ignore you! However, the URL change (and associated change in provider) may result in some email 'issues' which will hopefully resolve themselves in the next day or so as the new information is propagated throughout the aether. CD 1-5-20.
