Funding Opportunity

Abigail’s Arts Award

If you’ve got a passion for the arts, live in Pembrokeshire and are aged 16-25 then we can help you fulfil your dreams!

Abigail’s Arts Award is a bursary fund provided by Theatr Gwaun that aims to help young people in Pembrokeshire start a career in the arts. We launched in March 2022 with funding from the Goswell family as a way to honour the legacy of Abigail Goswell who passed away in 2020 from breast cancer.

We have two annual grants of £500 that can be spent on anything that helps a young person pursue their dreams of studying the arts. It might be tuition fees, travel to auditions, artistic materials or activities.


Anyone who’s aged 16-25, lives in Pembrokeshire and wants to pursue the creative or performing arts. Whether their passion is photography, dance, acting, writing, or cinematography we want to support it. From accordion playing to the Xylophone, we don’t discriminate – we just want to hear from you
