Festival to celebrate stories of the coast
A NEW festival centred around North Pembrokeshire will celebrate the region’s unique culture, history, landscape, and the spirit of endeavour that has forged connections to the rest of the world.
Ar Ymyl y Tir – On Land’s End is due to take place on September 24, 25 and 26, and is planned to become an annual event.
The three-day festival will take place in locations around Fishguard and Goodwick celebrating stories embedded in its unique history, landscape, and personal experience.
Theatr Gwaun, Fishguard’s community theatre will ‘host’ the festival and offer a warm welcome with hospitality provided in cooperation with local food and beverage producers.
The festival kicks off with the premiere of a new work written specifically for the event as local composer David Pepper teams up with writer Jon Gower to explore Vikings and Moby Dick, shipwrecks and seaweed.
What follows includes three days of words, music, film and art as a vast array of writers, musicians, performers and artists come together to honour the wild landscapes and rich history of this rugged coastline.
