Named after the ship of the infamous Captain Pugwash, Black Pig Border
was formed in 1986 in Eastwood on the Nottingham and Derby border. Over the
years we have developed our own style of Border Morris performing both traditional dances and some of our own invention.
We are a mixed group of both female and male dancers and musicians. We wear brightly coloured
tailcoats and top hats festooned with feathers, flowers, ribbons and bells.
We uphold the Border Morris tradition by blacking our faces as a disguise.
We practise on a Wednesday night at the Gate Inn in Awsworth and all are
