|The Laugharne Weekend Festival|
The Laugharne Weekend is an annual arts festival in Wales.
The festival is deliberately small-scale. The size of the town - which itself is very small - ensures that the festival will not grow beyond certain bounds. Its location means that festival visitors and townspeople rub shoulders with the artists and performers.
He has also said: "I'd sooner start another festival than let it grow too big."
The Laugharne Weekend concentrates on literature and music, drawing largely from writers and musicians from Wales or who have a connection with Wales. Previous headline performers have included Patti Smith, Ray Davies of the Kinks and Mick Jones of the The Clash.
All events take place in Laugharne's clubs, churches and halls, tiny and intimate venues which entail the close proximity of audience and performers.
