Llangwm Literary Festival 2017

Llangwm, Pembrokeshire builds on the success of its literary festival with a fascinating programme of writers, poets, storytellers, music, dancing and foraging.

Tristan Gooley (aka the Natural Navigator) will be telling us how to read water, the moon, the stars and the sun, and Harry Mount will tell us what really happened in David Cameron’s cabinet during the Brexit affair. In commemoration of the centenary of the Russian Revolution, we’ll have poems, pictures and consider what the revolution actually achieved. 

Natasha Pulley will read from her international bestseller ‘The Watchmaker of Filigree Street’ and will run a separate workshop for aspiring writers on ‘Writing and Rewriting’ and David Wilson will talk about his new photography book ‘Hinterland’.

The festival will breathe deeply in the spirit of the UK-Indian year of culture with Indian storytelling, memories of the Raj, Indian dance, music and a celebration of curry.

The festival also features Llangwm’s legendary Village Voices choir.  

Most tickets cost £5, £2:50 or are free with venues in Llangwm and runs between 11th and 13th August 2017

In addition to readings from Llangwm’s talented authors, local artists will be opening their studios during the festival weekend. Festival goers will be able to enjoy delicious local food served by The Cottage Inn, The Wesleyan Chapel, and the best of local producers, coordinated under the careful eye of The Little Dragon Brewery’s Morgan Coe.

Plenty to do for all ages, whatever the weather!

We are very lucky to be supported by Valero and a number of excellent hotels that will be accommodating our visiting writers and guests.
