ON LANDS EDGE, Theatr Gwaun, Fishguard, Sept 24th - 26th
A very special new festival for North Pembrokeshire, celebrating its unique culture, history, landscape, and the spirit of endeavour that has forged connections to the rest of the world.
Welcome to Kilphouca
9.15pm, Saturday September 25th
Brian Manton is an Irish writer who has lived in Wales for, Jaysus, is it ten years already? Fishguard Harbour has been his lifeline to Ireland, and the steadfast smell of stale chip fat at the station will forever evoke the dispossession of landless souls.
Join Brian (and other tellers of tales) as he shares stories about the imaginary village of Kilphouca, which is a bit like Fishguard but, then again, nothing like it.
More details about the festival are available here: https://theatrgwaun.com/on-lands-edge/
Finally, Nation Cymru have posted a round up of the daily Kilphouca readings, for anyone who might have missed one or would like to revisit the series.
