Event Description

Literature on the Lawn returns to the beautiful setting of Caerleon’s historic Priory Hotel with a celebration of the world of entertainment – stage, screen and music.
Taking as her backdrop the unlikely setting of Port Talbot, Angela V. Johns puts centre-stage the shifting fortunes of a town, its actors and, crucially, its enablers – those unsung heroes who helped to nurture talent in schools, youth centres and youth theatre. Drawing on extensive interviews, she provides a refreshing look at the history of a community and a profession, as well as casting new and unexpected light on the background of its most famous stars – Burton, Hopkins and Sheen.
Moving into the realm of music, Peter Finch’s latest offering charts the evolution of rock and popular music from the suburbs, pubs and clubs of 1950’s Cardiff to modern day America whilst Newport born Richard King will discuss his years working in Bristol’s legendary Revolver record shop, a dysfunctional yet magical business run by hearts not heads at the centre of Bristol’s 1990’s musical renaissance.
Band member and novelist Holly Muller’s debut novel examines the experience of growing up in Austria during Second World War Austria whilst Rachel Trezise will read from and talk about her prize winning short stories.
Throughout the day the events will be interspersed with readings from a number of Wales’ most promising up and coming talents, Joao Morais, Rhys Milsom and Adam Jenkins.
