Adam and Eve Forever. Overall this is a story of love conquering all and the journeys we sometimes find Overall this is a story of love conquering all and the journeys we sometimes find ourselves taking for love. I was only able to visit Laugharne Castle for Talacharn Trails and Tales , an enjoyable if fairly low key experience. However it was the culmination of a lot of community involvement and included Twitter stories written by local children as well as stories from local residents.
Dylan Thomas poems full of local references were animated and local history films were added to the stories. Film installation by Prue Thimbleby, Laugharne Castle.
Blodeuwedd by Prue Thimbleby, Laugharne Castle. There was a bit of a flower theme running through the tales and trails which I might elaborate on in a later post.
Plaques depicted local flora and QR codes gave hints on historical and local medicinal uses. Flower plaque by Prue Thimbleby, Laugharne Castle. Outside the castle coracles were being made by local people — maybe to help out the pilgrims? Until recently there were still a few licensees allowed to fish from coracles on the River Taf which flows into Carmarthen Bay at Laugharne. There seems to have been relatively little publicity for these events, although it is possible to track them down in local papers and the occasional Facebook and Twitter postings.

Lovely post, Diana… a fascinating journey around magical places and cultural events. Love all those storytelling threads weaving through the landscape, so deeply tied to spirit of place.

Much appreciated, Diana.

I have just been to another British Library event for the Writing Britain exhibition which was discussing the concept of home and place from a female viewpoint — very interesting. Good to see Blodeuwedd alighting here and there. I love your olympic antidotes… this sounds such a good event and your ideas for Wales trips are overflowing in my notebook! This installation is only there for a month or so I think, but Wales certainly has a lot to offer.
