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 2021 we changed our name from “The Men of Sweyn’s Ey Morris and Sword Dancers” to “Sweyn’s Ey Morris and Sword Dancers” to reflect the fact that we are now a mixed gender side.
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.
