Portmeirion festival takes centre stage in Wales

A village in Wales, that became famous for the cult 1960s series The Prisoner, has come out of the wings with the launch of a three-day music, arts and culture festival.

Portmeirion is hosting Festival Number 6 over the weekend, mixing big pop names like the Pet Shop Boys with a celebration of Welsh culture.

Among the highlights are a Dylan Thomas tribute by Welsh actor Rhys Ifans to mark the centenary of the poet's birth.
