Friday night programme addition:
The Ferryside Lapwings are a small collective of village wordsmiths, poets and singer/songwriters. It was formed during a collaborative performance by the original Ferryside Trio, Glyn Jones, Dominic Williams and Alexis Jones in September 2017 at the Llanelli’s Spoken Word Saturday organised by Eleanor Shaw.
Dominic Williams is a poet and Alexis performs what she claims to spoken word accompanied by a few strummed chords. Alexis writes and sings in both English and Welsh.
We’re delighted to welcome Dominic back to our festival. Dominic was one of the founders of the inaugural Dinefwr LitFest with Llenyddiaeth Cymru / Literature Wales in Llandeilo. It’s wonderful to have him here again continuing to contribute, at Llandeilo Lit Fest.
Catrin Beard will chair Jon Gower’s session on John Selway
Gary Raymond’s session “The Golden Orphans” had to be cancelled.

Last night Gaynor and I received an award for our Literature Festival. It’s amazing to think we had an idea two years ago and people everywhere have said yes, and helped and supported us, from artists to volunteers, councils, business owners and residents.
And despite set backs and all kinds of teething problems, support has not wavered and now we got a sssscestificate!
DIOLCH YN FAWR – MANY THANKS
