Our story is a unique one – and it isn’t over!’

Theatr Gwaun is an independent community theatre, with cinema, bar and café, in Fishguard, Pembrokeshire.

Theatr Gwaun has been through many interesting and challenging times since its opening as a community hall by the Temperance Movement in 1885. For many years it was run as a theatre and cinema by the local authority. When it was threatened with closure ten years ago, the community came to the rescue, with a small number of staff and dedicated volunteers taking on all operational activities. The same community spirit enabled us to re-open from lockdown in July 2021 and welcome audiences and performers back.

We are funded by generous contributors , loyal supporters of our Associate Membership, and Friends of Theatr Gwaun scheme along with grant awards from sponsors.


A generous award from Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority enabled us to install solar panels that will lead towards a greening future and electricity self-sufficiency.

With the help of external funding and volunteer power, the foyer and area café have been spruced up and COVID-19 precautionary measures installed throughout.


We are proud to collaborate with three annual musical festivals: Fishguard International Musical Festival, AberJazz and the Fishguard Folk Festival and with well-established and local dramatic companies such as Best Foot Forward, FADDS and Fishguard Musical Theatre Society.
