St Dogmaels is reached by the B4546, about 1.25 miles or 2km west of Cardigan, on the west bank of the Teifi river. It can be approached from either direction via the A487 to Cardigan, where there is a turning onto the B4546 for St Dogmaels (Llandudoch).
We perform for four nights Wednesday-Saturday, usually in the week leading up to the first weekend of August. Tickets are available in advance from Theatr Mwldan in Cardigan, or on the night on the door. Advance tickets usually go on sale online in early June. Subscribe to our mailing list to be notified when performance dates and ticket sales are announced.
There is limited parking space available at the bottom of the Abbey beside the Coach House. A larger County Council pay-and-display car park is situated on the High St opposite Bowen's Fish and Chip shop.
Chairs are provided, though audience members may bring their own seating if preferred. There is no allocated seating: attendees are advised to come earlier if they wish to reserve seats. You are welcome to bring food and drink for a picnic before the performance, but please ensure you do not leave any litter behind.
The stage and seating area is not covered so we are fully exposed to the local weather conditions. In the event that heavy rain is forecast, the play will take place at an alternative indoor location. Usually this is the St Dogmaels Memorial Hall.
There may be scattered rain or drizzle during a performance. It is a good idea to bring an umbrella or waterproof jacket in the event that there is rain.
The temperature is usually on the cool side towards the end of the play so please dress warmly and bring blankets if you wish. We do not provide blankets for hire at the Abbey.
The performance takes place in the Abbey's West Range, which is at the top of a grass slope. The slope is moderately steep, but can be navigated by wheelchair. There is a stone step around 15cm high surrounding the seating area. The crew are very happy to assist wheelchair users or any other visitors with mobility impairments in getting to their seats.
On leaving the performance it will be dark and the ground can be uneven in places. Larger steps will be lit but you may wish to bring your own torch to light your way back to the exit.
Toilets are located in the Coach House visitor centre at the bottom of the Abbey. The centre also serves refreshments before the show and during the interval.
There are lots of other things to see and do in St Dogmaels so it's well worth making a day of it:
