What is it all about?
The ship of the Ancient Mariner sailed to the South Pole where, in the poem, the Mariner shoots an albatross. Because he has destroyed a beautiful, living thing the winds blow the ship to the Equator where the ship's crew all perish under the burning heat of the sun. The Mariner survives, and is given the ability to be a blessing to the natural world. He returns to the Bristol Channel to tell his story...

Melting icecaps - a cubic metre of ice on Barry Docks
On Barry Docks we will be placing a cubed meter of ice beside the ship. This ice block represents the melting polar icecaps of our planet. We'll be asking the question, what is the role of Wales's biggest town in creating a sustainable future for Wales? Come and see the ship, learn about the story, and see the melting ice cap.

The festival is a Welsh celebration of human spirit, imagination, creativity and community in the landscape of Wales.
