The side was founded in Llanmadoc in 1966 and was originally known as the “Mighty Men of Madoc”. We moved to Swansea in 1968.
During our mummming tours in December 2016 and the Gowere Wassail in 2017 we raised over £ 960 for Ty Olwen.
We’re back to practice on Thursday 5th January at 7.30 p.m. in The Sacred Heart Centre, Pentrepoeth School Rd, Morriston, Swansea SA6 6HX. We also plan to take the rapper dancing out to the pubs a few times over the winter.
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.
