The side was founded in Llanmadoc in 1966 and was originally known as the “Mighty Men of Madoc”. We moved to Swansea in 1968.
The 2019 dancing season is upon us. Our next outing is on Saturday 15th June at Gower Folk Festival, Weobley Castle at 12 ish, followed by a workshop from 2.30 to 4.00 p.m. for anyone who wants to give it a try
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.
