Cardigan’s Theatre Mwldan is to present a collection of four short films based on the Cardi Bach Railway, which ran from Whitland to Cardigan between 1886 and 1963.

All proceedings made will be donated to the Cardi Bach Railway Society.

Flagged for closure under the Beeching Axe, the line ceased operation on May 27 May 1963. The closure marked a change in a whole way of life and the end of an era.

The line was notorious for its rural nature, attractive scenery, and severe gradients. For many in the area, the line was the focus of the local community, gaining the nickname the Cardi Bach.

The event will feature a film by Dr. George Penn documenting the last journey of the train in 1962.

The film details the journey of a passenger from Carmarthen to see her family in Eglwyswrw and another that shows the line in full operation in 1957.

The screenings will be narrated live in both Welsh and English by Emyr Phillips.

The performance will not be socially distanced. As a condition of entry, all ticket holders must be over the age of 11 and will be required to provide proof of a negative NHS lateral flow test taken within the last 24 hours to attend the performance.

Pre-booking is essential and tickets will be available 24/7 via the theatre's website,, and the Box Office by phone from Tuesday to Sunday 2-4 pm at 01239 621 200. Tickets will be priced at £7.70 (£5.90).
