4pm to 5pm Quiz

Test your knowledge of literary crimes with this fun quiz to end the day.


Diamond Crime was founded by crime writers Steve Timmins, Jeff Dowson and Phil Rowlands. They were all published authors looking for a new home for their books, but finding the tortuous and ego-denting experience wearing, they decided there had to be another way of doing this, a different way. So, after months of research into the world of small indie publishing and knowing what they and other writers, they were sure, wanted from a publisher – trust, care, support, creative collaboration as well a platform for their books – they decided to take the plunge, and so Diamond Books and its first imprint, Diamond Crime, was launched in May 2021. Now it has eight authors with another couple in the pipeline, fourteen books published and ten more on the way. Their plan is to grow organically, not just go for numbers. They want to spend time with their authors so that their books are the best they can be. They are a platform for new and established voices and an opportunity for those talented writers out there, who can’t get their books published or even read.

Life in a Medieval Village a course by Terry John

This September Terry John will be running a series of 3 weekly classes beginning on Wednesday 6th September (2-4pm).

This course explores the daily life of the people of a medieval village, with particular reference to two Pembrokeshire communities, Lamphey and Llawhaden. What were the laws and traditions governing the community?  What was expected of the women of the village? What were the duties of the steward, the hayward, the warriner or the priest? And how much influence did the lord of the manor wield?

£25 for the whole course per person

Threading Memories with Sian Lester

As part of Narberth Museum’s WOWW (Women of West Wales) project, local textile artist Siân Lester is offering a two-day workshop, exploring gathered memorabilia using cloth, stitch andbotanical dyes.

You will choose a significant woman from your life as your focus for creating a unique textile art piece. You will need to bring to the space a piece of cloth such as a small tablecloth or handkerchief, perhaps owned by your woman of choice.

During the workshop we will immerse cloth in dye baths, stitch in and embellish our individual pieces. We will be adding photographic
imagery and memorabilia to thread together an artwork that visually evokes memories that reflect your woman’s personality; in turn celebrating and honour their lives.

Your remarkable female could be a family member or a friend who is living or deceased, who inspires you or has left her mark onyour memory.

We will be thinking about forgotten handiwork and the domesticity of a woman’s life; the folded,the embellished, the worn, the mended and the cared for. We will look at how objects and cloth hold memory and we will gather people and materials together to remember, stitch and share.

You will need to provide photographs or letters to be printed in advance; more detailed information given when you sign up. Other materials will be provided but please bring along your memories, stories, memorabilia and anything you’d like to infuse into your piece.

No skills or experience
necessary, but a love for reminiscing, stitch and cloth would help!

Booking is essential. 10 spaces available.

The workshop will run from 10 – 4 pm on 15th & 16th June, with a break for lunch. Please bring your own lunch.
