The side was founded in Llanmadoc in 1966 and was originally known as the “Mighty Men of Madoc”. We moved to Swansea in 1968.
Our mumming season this winter raised over £1000 for Shelter Cymru, thanks to all the pubs where we performed and the people who contributed to the collection.
We are back to practice every Thursday from 7.30 until 9.30 p.m. at the Sacred Heart Community Centre in Morriston, we follow this with a pint in a nearby pub. All newcomers (dancers and musicians) are particularly welcome.
See our “Where and When” page for our full diary of events.
We meet every Thursday evening.
In summer we dance outdoors, giving displays at some of the many pubs from the Swansea Valley to the Gower Peninsula. In addition we dance at folk festivals, fetes, weddings, ceilidhs, barbecues etc.
In winter we practice at the Sacred Heart Community Centre in Morriston.
At Christmas time we keep alive another old local tradition called Mumming. We perform the Gower mummer’s play and Crwmpyn John, a Swansea Valley play. We use this as an opportunity to collect for local charities.
New members are always welcome either as dancers or musicians.
