Laugharne, a quaint little coastal township that sits on the stunning Carmarthen Bay coast, it was the home of the legendary Welsh poet & writer Dylan Thomas who described it as ‘the strangest town in Wales’! Laugharne is also making a name for itself as the home of the Laugharne Weekend festival that is now in it’s 10th year. It’s not a festival where the streets are closed off, it’s not a festival where the pubs close because of fighting, it’s a festival with a great vibe, a festival that you can have a drink with a celebrity or two & a festival where you get both entertained & abused by Keith Allen while queuing up for your fish & chips! This year I was only able to attend one of the three days but what a day it was! Amongst the top talent on stage was Sir Tony Robinson (aka Baldrick), Scritti Politti & the inimitable Dr John Cooper Clarke. Alongside the official festival there is also a quality fringe festival that is hosted at the towns 1940’s museum The Tin Shed. The quality of the entertainment at this years fringe also failed to disappoint with quality music by Swansea’s Lost Tuesday Society & the voice from TV’s The Voice, Ragsy! The worse part of the festival was that it was over too soon & I for one am already counting down to Laugharne 2018.
