Punk legend, Patti Smith will give a poetry reading at Dylan Thomas’ boathouse today (March 31) to an audience of just 20 people as part of the Laugharne literary weekend.

The intimate set is her second performance at the festival following her full set of poetry and music at the 200-capacity village hall last night (March 30). Tickets for the gig sold out in minutes when they were put on sale in February.

The gig was the highlight of a line-up that included author and journalist, Will Self, former drug baron, Howard Marks, comedian Keith Allen, music from ex-Gorky’s guitarist Richard James and a duet with Patrick Wolf and Ed Larrikin of Larrikin Love.

The Smiths guitarist, Mike Joyce held a question and answer session with a small audience after showing the new documentary “Inside the Smiths”.

The performance will close the annual festival held in the home of the famous welsh playwright.
