Like everyone else we are missing our regular events during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our summer programme was cancelled and for the first time in over 40 years we won’t be taking the mumming plays out and about this Christmas.
It’s frustrating for us but it’s particularly difficult for all the pubs that we rely on for most of our dance and mumming tours. There are some great pubs around Swansea and Gower and we hope to be back supporting them as soon as we’re able.

The side was founded in Llanmadoc in 1966 and was originally known as the “Mighty Men of Madoc”. We moved to Swansea in 1968.
We meet every Thursday evening throughout the year.
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 festivals, fetes and even weddings.
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.
