Talacharn Trails and Tales is a storybased installation running everyday from June 16th – July 15th at Laugharne Castle in South Wales.

Enter the enchanted castle and find yourself is a world of stories. Peep through the gatehouse at ghosts from the civil war. Be surprised by voices from the past sharing their memories of what was Dylan Thomas’ Undermilkwood. Follow riddles and find the trails. Discover the stories of medieval plants and the children who are playing hide and seek. Above all beware the giant hiding in the tower!
