There’s a mention of Plygain on this link but it’s not a Plygain service as such:



9 December
6.30 pm
Capel Penygraig

South of Carmarthen
West of Cwmffrwd and Idole (A484)
East of the Towy and the railyway line and Croesyceiliog


Just arranged - St Peter’s Cardiff, Friday 18th January at 8 pm. If it’s anything like the last two years we won’t have enough partion Plygain to fill the time, so there’ll be some other types of carols. If you sing plygain and want to support us get in touch. I’m on Facebook - Steve Jeans, Cardiff.



Llanddarog, between Carmarthen and Cross Hands

Jan 13 2019, 5pm.

I’ve been to this service a couple of times and it’s almost standing room only. @Karla came with me one time, she’d been in Wales for less than a week (on her first visit to Wales) and she still recognised people there.


Sunday 6 Jan, 2 pm, St Fagans National Museum of History.

A plygain service will be held in Chapel Penrhiw, St Fagans at 11.30 pm, on December 24th.

That sounds like it will be a really traditional one and a lovely way to spend Christmas Eve!
