The line-up for next month's Dinefwr Literature Festival has been announced, with National Poet of Wales Gillian Clarke opening the first day.

More than 100 literature, music, arts and comedy events will take place at the bilingual festival, which runs from Friday 29 June to Sunday 1 July at Dinefwr Park and Castle in Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire.

Among the spoken-word guests will be Andrew Motion, Tim Burgess, Howard Marks, Jasper Fforde, Robert Minhinnick and Wendy Cope. Comedy will be provided by John Hegley, Simon Munnery, Josie Long, Tom Wrigglesworth and others, while music performers will include Julian Cope, Gruff Rhys, Georgia Ruth, Ghostpoet and Emmy The Great.

Lleucu Siencyn, one of the festival's directors, said: "This is a festival with everybody in mind - families, music fans, readers, writers and those who love the great outdoors."

Weekend, day and camping tickets are available, with discounts for National Trust and Literature Wales members.
