The theatre provides tickets for the Festival Players in the first week of August every year. in the ruins of St Dogmael.s Abbey: a wonderful backdrop. We gave been going for the last 12 years; it is a highlight of our summer. The actors give us pure unadulterated Shakespeare with no RSC type gimmicks. The verse is always spoken quite perfectly, measured yet animated.
Worth going a long way to see and hear Shakesepeare done `properly.' Must take hours and hours of practice to give every syllable full weight and meaning. This amateur company cannot be praised too highly for excelling most professional actors in verse-speaking, movement and meaning. Excellent musical accompaniment. This was easily the best `Midsummer Night's Dream' we have seen anywhere: we offer this judgement as a pair of English teachers who know the play almost by heart. All thanks to Theatr Mwldan for supporting this event.

Never had a bad meal here. Always plenty of veggie options. Generous portions, fresh and tasty, friendly staff and good coffee. The only downside to this place is that you're essentially sitting in the middle of the theatre foyer, so lacks atmosphere.

We were visitors to the area in May, and we hope that local residents realize what a gem they have in this theater. The scope and variety of the films and performances here are more like what one would find in a large city in the United States. The lobby area also has a helpful visitor center, a cafe and bar with good food, and free wi-fi, not always easy to find in rural Wales.

Not only is this a great art centre, but it has one of the best cafes in the town and they make amazing coffee. Took my parents there today and had delicious homemade garlic and sweet potato soup and tasty warm brown home made bread. Also lovely exhibition space by the cafe that you can look around for free and the Welsh tourist information centre for the area is next to the cafe as well.
