Choirs, a harpist and a Dylan Thomas talk will all be featured in Tenby as the town stages its own St David’s Festival later this month.

And there's also a chance for performers and entertainers to make their own contributions.

The event brings together aspects of Welsh culture to celebrate the patron saint of Wales, whose national day is, of course, on March 1.

Performing will be the Quaynotes, the Griffon Choir and Tenby’s St Mary’s Church Choir and there will be a collection for Serendipity and Patch charity.

On Friday March 1, Tenby and District Arts Club will be welcoming Rev. Nigel Griffiths to St Johns Church Hall at 7pm to give a talk on St David.
