We’re proud to announce the second
Llandeilo Lit Fest
Cadwch y dyddiad : Ebrill 27ain-29ain 2018
Rydym yn falch i gyhoeddi ail Ŵyl Lên Llandeilo
Yn dilyn digwyddiad agoriadol llwyddiannus rydym yn cadarnhau’r ail Ŵyl yn ein tref hardd.
Bydd yr ŵyl unwaith eto’n cynnwys amrywiaeth o dalent newydd a sefydlog, awduron lleol a chenedlaethol, beirdd a pherfformwyr. Byddwn yn cynnal sgyrsiau panel a darlleniadau yn Gymraeg a Saesneg (bydd cyfieithu ar y pryd i’r rhai nad ydynt yn siarad Cymraeg), gweithdai, teithiau tywysedig, ffair lyfrau, cystadlaethau a helfa lyfrau – rhywbeth yn wir i bawb.
After last year’s successful inaugural event we’re delighted to confirm a second festival in our beautiful town.
The festival will again include a variety of new and established talent, local and national authors, poets and performers. We’ll be holding panel talks and readings in English and Welsh (with translation facilities for non-Welsh speakers), workshops, a book fair, guided walks, competitions and a book hunt – simply something for everyone.
Towards the end of this year Llandeilo Lit Fest in collaboration with the Carmarthenshire Libraries are organising a series of Book Fairs in Llanelli Library, Ammanford Library, Carmarthenshire Library and one in Llandeilo.
Provisionary dates are:
Carmarthenshire October 21st – Carmarthen Library
Ammanford October 28th – Ammanford Library
Llanelli – November 4th – Llanelli Library
Llandeilo – December 9th – Llandeilo Library and/or Shire Hall and Horeb
The Llandeilo Lit Fest will be held April 27 – 29th 2018.
There will be another Book Fair on Saturday 28th at the Civic Hall.

If you came to Llandeilo Litfest 2017 and you have 2 minutes to fill in this 3 question survey, we’d be delighted and grateful. Diolch! Llandeilo Litfest Feedback
It’s been a fantastic weekend. Attendance and enthusiasm has been wonderful and was more than encouraging for future events.
Wales and Carmarthen have a wealth of talented writers and artists who need a platform to show off their craft. We hope our festival has given them a boost to make sure they are not forgotten in a world with less and less bookshops and more and more anonymous, online warehouses.
We hope we managed to be inclusive by bringing Welsh and English language art into one event and had a little bit to offer for everyone.
Thanks to all the performers and artists, many of whom waived their fees to ensure the festival could come off the grounds.
Thanks to all the business owners in Llandeilo for supporting out event, thanks to the many donors, the enthusiatsic audiences and literature lovers, our sponsors Birdshill, Literature Wales and the Town Council.
Thanks to the committee members for their hard work and the invaluable volunteers, the many individuals who advised us in the planning process, the schools fro supporting us with the competitions, the Tref Llandeilo Town Band and the town itself, who has been so wonderfully supportive.
Too many people to mention individually but be sure that nobody’s forgotten.
Here are a few pictures from the festival.
Diolch yn fawr!
