Back to Laugharne

Today's Western Mail has details of this years Laugharne Weekend Festival. They report that organisers have pulled off the coup of bringing the likes of surviving members of legendary punk band The Clash and Kinks founder Ray Davies to the Town made famous for its Dylan Thomas connection.

The highlights of last year were the two concerts by Patti Smith, one in the Laugharne Millennium Hall and the other in Dylan Thomas' boathouse. The latter venue is very exclusive as I believe that it is difficult to get more than 25 people in there at a squeeze. Needless to say I was unable to get tickets for either.

Patti Smith is returning this year and will be joined by the leader of the Great Train Robbery, Bruce Reynolds, Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh, comedians Alexi Sayle and Keith Allen and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin writer Louis De Bernières. Other artists are Simon Armitage, A. L. Kennedy, DBC Pierre, Mark Steel and Willy Vlautin.

There is a weekend ticket on sale on the website now whilst tickets for individual events will go on sale next Friday.
