On Land’s Edge was ‘a weekend packed with creative endeavour’. It started with a full house at Theatr Gwaun for Ghost Rider, a play adapted by Anne Garside from the novel If God will spare my life by former Tivyside reporter, Mike Lewis.

The festival closed with Simffoni Mara, a superb fusion of live music from David Pepper and Daniel Davies, poetry from Richard Wheeler and stunning visuals from landscape film maker Connor Malone.

In between those two fantastic performances were 11 other events including live music sets, puppet theatre, a literature day, promenade theatre, bilingual creative writing workshops and even a festival sea swim.

“We hope that the hundreds of people who formed our audiences over the weekend left feeling joyful and inspired.”
