West Wales will enjoy a new literature festival this summer set in the beautiful surroundings of Dinefwr Park and Castle in Llandeilo.

The Dinefwr Literature Festival is a collaboration between Literature Wales, the National Trust, and the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

The new bilingual festival has been awarded £65,000 by the Arts Council of Wales from its Festivals Fund and will take place from Friday 29 June to Sunday 1 July.

The line-up, which hasn't yet been announced, is likely to include a wide-ranging mixture of authors, storytellers and performance poets, with fringe events to get the children as well as adults involved. Along with literature the festival will also include music, comedy and cinema.

The site will have a dedicated camping field for the weekend, plus outdoor entertainment and a variety of stalls will hopefully add to the festival atmosphere.

A website for the Dinefwr Literature Festival will be launched soon, but in the meantime you can find out more on the Literature Wales website and read about Dinefwr Park on the National Trust website.
