Cymdeithas Cwmdu – first Thursday of every month 8pm

Cymdeithas Cwmdu is the community group set up in 2000 to maintain the special quality of the village, by sustaining the pub, shop and post office as valuable community facilities. We organise social events like the annual fete, boat race and apple day, as well as running Tafarn Cwmdu as a community enterprise.  It’s not only the residents of Cwmdu who enjoy the facilities and the many activities that go on here, though. People from far afield enjoy what Cwmdu has to offer and we hope they will continue to do so for many years. If you use the shop and pub, or enjoy coming to our events, feel free to come to the monthly meetings and join in planning the next big thing!

Classic Club – second Thursday of every month 8pm


The Classic Club started from idle talk in the pub – always a dangerous thing! As you would expect in an agricultural area like Cwmdu, there are many people interested in old farm machinery, and in old or classic machines generally. The club is very informal: no membership fees or programme,  so why not come along and meet the enthusiasts?

Book Club – last Thursday of every month 8pm

Each month book club members get together in the comfy upstairs sitting room of  the Inn to discuss two books . Like all the Cwmdu groups, the club is very informal and discussion roams widely. See here for this month’s reads.

Folk Club – first Friday of winter months 8pm

Musicians playing at a folk night in Cwmdu Inn
If you enjoy listening to great music in a quirky setting, visit Cwmdu on a folk night. Musicians come from far and wide to join in with a jam session in the dining room, and the pub is packed with an appreciative audience. Check the What’s on page for the next session.
