Men of Sweyns Ey

The Men of Sweyns Ey visited Ty Olwen recently to present a donation of £870 raised during their Mumming performances.  Each year just before Christmas the Men of Sweyn’s Ey perfom The Gower Christmas Sport and Crympyn John, mummers plays, a tradition dating back several centuries.  These comical plays are delivered in rhyme and include a mock fight between two heroes, one of whom is killed.  A doctor appears and resurrects him and he lives to fight another day.

We have received a further donation of £90.00 raised during  their Gowere Wassail.
