With three major festivals, a 4K digital cinema-theatre and live music venues,
you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much goes on here!
Our aim at PEPPERS is to offer a service that is high quality and unique to everyone that comes through our door. PEPPERS Fishguard is a hub for the arts that features a diverse live music program, quickly gaining the reputation as an exciting jazz venue, as well as programming classical, contemporary and folk music.
The surroundings are curated by the West Wales Arts Centre with leading fine artists’ work on display while, in the kitchen, we source many of our ingredients locally, cook them fresh with a passion and we create our drinks menus to have distinctive originality.
Fishguard Folk Festival
Fishguard’s Folk Festival brings together a unique mix of local talent and well-known performers to provide four days of songs, tunes and dance. Most events are still free, only four ticketed concerts and whether you want to play, sing, dance or just watch and listen, there is always a choice of things to do throughout this fun-packed friendly festival.
The Folk Music Group will return to the Royal Oak as soon as we are past the C-19 challenges. This is an informal session, featuring folk and traditional performers, chanties, Welsh songs, Irish jigs and reels. Everyone is welcome to come along and join in, even if you are a beginner.
Fishguard and West Wales International Music Festival
Our Festival takes place every summer and brings world-class musicians to venues across the region, from Rhosygilwen in the east to St Davids in the west and Haverfordwest in the south.
The Festival celebrates a wide variety of styles from early music through the orchestral and chamber repertoires of the 19th and 20th centuries to the very best in jazz, folk and world music.
The 2021 Festival will take place from Sunday 22nd August to Sunday 12th September. Details of the programme and information on how to book can be found on our website.
We are back with a bang with two Aberjazz festivals in 2021! The 17th Fishguard Jazz & Blues Festival which will now be held over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend (28th April to 3rd May) and the 18th Fishguard Jazz & Blues Festival which will as usual run for five days over the August Bank Holiday weekend, from 26th to 30th August. Let the good times roll again.
The 1920s will be forever associated with jazz, so throughout this decade we will be celebrating 100 years since the birth of jazz and blues. Our programmes will reflect the style and flavour of 1920s, think of flappers, speakeasies, Charleston and all that jazz.

Find Jemima and Her Friends
Local heroine, Jemima, is hiding with 15 of her friends around Fishguard and Goodwick. In 1797 when a French army invaded Pembrokeshire, Jemima Nicholas made a name for herself by rounding up 12 French soldiers with a pitch-fork, single handed! It’s also said that a further two soldiers were hiding in a barn – she went in after them and, when she came out again, she had one under each arm!
The Jemima Trail is fun for all the family, with a bit of history, a local heroine and a chance to win!
