The Pembrokeshire Story connects people across generations in celebrating the Pembrokeshire spirit.
We all love a good story, but they are especially good if they throw light on the place that we are from.
The Pembrokeshire Story originally brought local artists and our community together to map the county through everyday stories told by the people who live here. With 90 stories currently on the website from every corner of the county, we're looking to expand that number with some new tales that tell the story and celebrate life in Pembrokeshire past and present.
A story might be something as simple as how life has changed over the years or it might be a special event remembered. So often these stories remain as legends within our own families, and this website offer the chance to share them with the world.
Everyone has a story to tell, and we hope The Pembrokeshire Story will help these stories to be recorded and remembered for generations to come.

The Torch Theatre, with the help of a team of Pembrokeshire-based freelance creatives, has created a Living Archive of 90 of your stories that are mapped on The Pembrokeshire Story website, which launched in April of 2021. The archive includes videos and written pieces and images.
And now in Autumn 2022 we'd like to add to the archive so we can keep telling the story. So we want more stories from more people about life in Pembrokeshire past and present. We'd particularly like to see videos made by young people where they interview their grandparents or older relatives about their experiences and stories of life in Pembrokeshire.
All stories - written, filmed or audio will be added to the website and as an online living archive, will be available for anyone to access and enjoy. They will all help to tell the story of this amazing county.
Written stories can be up to 1000 words long and can be submitted by email or hard copy. It's great to have some photos included.
Videos must be no longer than 5 minutes in length, they can be made on a phone or recorded from a digital platform call (MP4 format), they must be filmed landscape and they can be in either English or in Welsh.
