Up here on the North Pembrokeshire coast, there's not much in the way of theatre. And the one theatre we do have, Pembrokeshire County Council is intent on closing - by way of council cuts. Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard was (from the 1920s) a cinema, and still is - but from the 1990s it was reconfigured with stage and lighting for theatre and musical events. Closing the theatre would not only deprive the North Pembrokeshire community of an important entertainment venue, but one which can bring the unique experience of live theatre to the local community. So we have formed Friends of Theatr Gwaun. We have set up a website: fotg.org.uk, we are bringing productions to the theatre, we are actively promoting it and have submitted a full project plan to the County Council showing how we could take over the running of the theatre - and we believe run it sustainably. If you're interested in helping to save a theatre, go to www.fotg.org.uk
