The Laugharne Weekend : John Cooper Clarke
Now in its seventh year, The Laugharne Weekend is an intimate event where visitors, performers and locals rub shoulders in the streets and pubs of a tiny Welsh town. This year's Laugharne Weekend Festival will take place on the weekend of April 5-7th at:
Congregational Church - For music played quietly, to an audience sitting in the wooden pews
Millennium Hall - The Weekend's biggest venue, Laugharne's cosy Millennium Hall
The Boathouse - Dylan Thomas's Boathouse, an intimate venue overlooking the 'heron-priested' estuary
Fountain Inn - Home of Laugharne Rugby Club, and where most of the Weekend's music events take place, upstairs in the tiny bar
Browns Hotel Marquee - A large marquee in the gardens of Browns Hotel, Dylan Thomas's iconic local
All events are accessible by wheelchair, except those held in the Fountain Inn and the Boathouse. Wheelchair access to the Congregational Church is possible but not ideal.

Britain’s best loved and most important performance poet, John Cooper Clarke is as vital now as he was in the '70s. His biting, satirical, political and very funny verse, delivered in a unique rapid-fire performance style, resonated with the punk movement and he toured with all the seminal bands, from The Sex Pistols to The Clash, until he soon began to draw large crowds in his own right.
John Cooper Clarke is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on pop culture. His influence can also be heard in the satirical and keen social observations of artists such as Plan B and the Arctic Monkeys.
As well as his regular TV appearances on the likes of Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Would I Lie To You and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, John also host 6 Music shows and his own BBC Radio 4 Show 'John Cooper Clarke Live at the BBC'.
