The side was founded in Llanmadoc in 1966 and was originally known as the “Mighty Men of Madoc”. We moved to Swansea in 1968.
In December 2018 we had our usual quota of festive fun over 4 Mumming tours (Mumbles, Swansea Valley, South Gower and Killay) and raised a total of £ 725.82 for Breast Cancer Care Cymru.
Practice will resume on Thursday 3rd January at The Sacred Heart Community Centre, Pentrepoeth School Rd, Morriston, Swansea SA6 6HX.
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.
