Sullivan's Sword is a longsword dance group from Nottingham that also performs folk plays. Their play from Farnsfield, Nottinghamshire was garnered from the repertoire of the defunct Owd Oss Mummers, of which they were originally an offshoot. The group organises the day of Plough Sunday activities at Morton, near Southwell, attended by numerous folk dance groups and performers.
