On Saturday there is a panel discussion on the campaign to devolve the Crown Estate in Wales which is supported by Michael Sheen and St Davids celebrity, Jerome Flynn.

You can also bring your own vegetables to test and compare their nutritional quality using a Brix tester. Are your organic carrots better for you than a cheap supermarket one?

In the afternoon, there’s a session on Gerald of Wales at the Cathedral, or you can come to hear Siân Richardson, founder of the Bluetits Chill Swimming club, talking about ‘Building communities on Land and Sea’ and how this supports mental health. Alongside Siân, Porthmawr Lifesaving Club will talk about water safety – crucial in the Pembrokeshire waves.

Finally, children and adults alike will be spellbound by renowned artist Jackie Morris and poet Mererid Hopwood, with poetry, painting and a tour of the Lost Words exhibition at Oriel y Parc.

Formerly called St David’s Festival of Ideas, the festival was renamed this year to reflect Pembrokeshire’s amazing land and sea. The organisers asked the community how the festival could support them and the ideas flowed in.

Festival organiser Sarah Foster, said: “We have had enormous support from the community, including generous donations from local businesses and GWRP, to enable this festival to happen.

“We sought and listened to our community and have created a programme which we hope will have something for everyone.

We are proud to be working with Care in the community who are decorating the City Hall with their art using recycled materials and our local school in supporting their Welsh Enrichment week.”
