RS Thomas and ME Eldridge Poetry and Art Festival: Spirit of Place
The 6th annual Poetry & Art Festival celebrates RS Thomas & ME Eldridge in the Welsh coastal village of Aberdaron where he was vicar and she an artist.
The first festival was held in 2014. Since then we have been honoured to welcome distinguished speakers from the United Kingdom and the United States, including our patron Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury. The festival has sponsored fresh expressions of the poetry and art for new audiences. Our festival location in Aberdaron on the Llŷn Peninsula enables people to experience first-hand the landscapes that inspired the poetry of Thomas and the art of Eldridge.
This year we are including a one day Creative Writing Workshop with Menna Elfyn
