Coleridge in Wales Festival 2016
Tour: 15 May – 8 August 2016

An 80 day adventure around Wales following routes taken by the great world poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

The ship of The Ancient Mariner sailing into Welsh harbours with a crew of Zombies from Coleridge’s greatest poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.
Partnering with Welsh museums, universities, art centres, and beautiful Welsh landscape, find out why for two hundred years Welsh cultural giants, from Iolo Morganwg to R.S. Thomas, have engaged deeply with Coleridge’s vision for society and landscape.

A family festival on the move with local events, touring exhibitions, excursions, compelling theatre and meetings across village, port, school, town and city. Travel by bus, train, bike, boat, on foot and horseback to celebrate Coleridge’s lost vision and discover Wales’ hidden cultural treasure.
