Just because you are in an amazingly beautiful part of the world where population density (human) is low, it doesn’t mean that you have to miss the latest film releases or exciting metropolitan performances of High Culture. Theatr Gwaun, in Fishguard, offers a similar programme to the splendid Curzon chain – big new films, art house classics and relays from London’s National Theatre. In addition there’s often real live entertainment – a panto at Christmas time and many opportunities to hear local musicians.
Theatr Gwaun is owned by the local authority and after years of struggle has emerged triumphant thanks to a wonderful group of volunteers.
What’s more, this community cinema and theatre has a bar which will serve you local craft beers to take into the auditorium and you can enjoy superb sound and picture quality for the ticket price of £6.
The reviews are fantastic. Here’s a taster: ‘really comfy’, ‘great experience’, ‘asset to Fishguard’, ‘helpful staff’, ‘cool people running it’, ‘seriously good quality audio and vision’, ‘well priced’, ‘rather good popcorn’, ‘welcoming’, ‘toilets are spotless’!

Glad it’s being used and valued. I played the piano there once, ten years ago, for the Folk Festival: my job was to accompany all-comers who might want to sing early 20C songs from musical shows or jazz standards. It was my first gig in Pembrokeshire and the first of many others (mostly classical) until we moved away. Always grateful for that opportunity.
How delightful! I hope you’re finding similar opportunities in Crickhowell.
Sadly not yet, but after a year of house renovation and decoration I’ve reached the point where I can start to address it! Thank you 🙂
