Here’s some info on the town and the festival

Laugharne has a unique character which has been of great inspiration to artists and writers. The most notable
of these being Dylan Thomas who based his work Under Milk Wood on the township. He had a long affinity with
Laugharne spending the last four years of his life in The Boathouse which is now a heritage centre dedicated to him.

The town has a long and impressive literary history, early feminist writer Mary Wollstonecroft lived there. Kingsley
Amis wrote his 1986 Booker Prize winning novel ‘The Old Devils’ while staying in Laugharne and Margaret Atwood’s
short story ‘The Grave of The Famous Poet’ was based in Laugharne.
