Maltby Sword Dancers

1897 - to today!

A true and complete history of

Maltby Sword Dancers

People keep asking, and sometimes they even tell us, about our origins. To avoid any confusion on this, our tenth anniversary year we have composed this timeline to help explain.

This is an ongoing page and so there are still a few festivals and events not mentioned so far. Keep sending in the corrections!

We’d also love to put a list of past and present dancers here but there are a lot and we’d hate to miss anyone out. The people who we have mentioned are those who made a contribution that directly maintained our presence as a sword dance team.
