A couple more events have come to light happening in our world of sword.

Those Edinburgh gunners, Mons Meg Rapper are joining Prestonpans Mummers at the Mummer’s Ball on Friday 2nd may in sunny Scotland. The Ball takes place at the Counting House in Edinburgh from 8pm. Apparently Mons Meg will be stomping and spinning, weaving wild patterns on the floor!

Thrales are actually out on crawl this evening! Friday 11th April. Kicking off at The Birdcage in Stoke Newington at 7:55pm. Not 8pm, but 7:55pm. Follow their progress on their twitter feed.

The Men of Sweyn’s Ey (Swansea) have just been added to the SDU map of UK sword dance teams as have Southport Swords, dancers of, amongst other traditions, Papa Stour.
