If you fancy doing something a little different at the end of this week, then Laugharne Weekend is definitely worth looking into. This arts festival is held in the pretty Welsh town of Laugharne every spring and offers a fantastic mix of musicians, authors and comedians.
What makes Laugharne Weekend really special is the eccentricity of Laugharne itself. This West Wales town embodies all that is wonderful about Welsh creativity and helps bring together extraordinary talent from all over the world to celebrate the arts. Deliberately small-scale, Laugharne Weekend maintains an intimacy and quirkiness that eludes many other famous arts events, making a point to include the locality. Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas, who lived in Laugharne and who is a key inspiration for the festival, affectionately described the town as “timeless, beautiful, barmy”. Indeed, Laugharne has barely changed since he lived there and it is often said that if he were ever to return, he would recognise it immediately.
