We gave our first public show in July 1971. Our costume reflects our rural background, and our green baldrics are decorated with Celtic designs that are found on the Ancient Stone Crosses located around the County. Our name comes from "The Hundred of Trigg", an ancient administrative area of Mid Cornwall, and most of our men live within reasonably easy reach of Bodmin. We perform dances of the "Cotswold" style: Fieldtown with sticks or handkerchiefs, Bucknell also with sticks or handkerchiefs, but with the hands at shoulder height, and Stanton Harcourt, which nobody else still remembers, but where we have the handkerchiefs on our little fingers and sometimes with both sticks and hankies at the same time! As well as the occasional Lichfield dance with 8 men. We are a side who have decided to keep a tradition of men-only dancing, but we are happy to have lady musicians. Ladies who also want to dance are welcome to join our friends in Tywardreath Morris, and we like them so much that many of the men from Trigg also dance there. (on Wednesdays). We mainly dance on Thursdays, but we have no recollection why we chose that day. But we've been doing it so long it must be a tradition by now..
