Menna Elfyn : Cennan Cerddi was erroneously billed for Sunday on the Ticket website, but it is on Saturday, as published everywhere else.

Due to a family illness AMAZING ADJECTIVES and DINGLEDUM DRAGON have been cancelled. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

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.

The event is bilingual and free and starts at 20:30 in the Angel Inn. 

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.

Their performance will be a short lightweight bilingual mixed set of 20mins – 1/2 hour with a sense of humour, serving as natural bridge between Ifor ap Glyn and Noel James.

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.
