PRLog - Nov. 1, 2012 - The Dylan Thomas Festival is to continue with a full day of activity on Sunday 4 November as three exciting events are set to take place.

Author and historian Mark Davies kicks things off with a literary tour of the River Thames at 11am.

Mark will explore the ways in which the canal and rivers of Oxford feature in many works of literature such as work from Chaucer and Tom Brown to classics like Alice in Wonderland and Wind in the Willows.

Then at 1pm poet Rhian Edwards leads a workshop on maximising the impact of live poetry readings.

Rhian is a prominent poet having won the John Tripp Award in 2011-12 and her collection Clueless Dogs has just been shortlisted for the Forward Prize.

Renowned expert Derek Shiel then introduces a showing of his fascinating film on David Jones at 2pm. Jones’s development as an artist is demonstrated in the film through interviews with scholars, artists, writers and images of his work.

Jo Furber Swansea Council’s Literature Officer said "The Dylan Thomas Festival celebrates arts and entertainment including music, theatre, art and prose. We are thrilled to welcome our impressive range of talented guests to the 2012 Festival.  

“We expect to attract visitors from across Britain, and as far a field as the USA and Australia”.

Tickets for these events are available by ringing the Dylan Thomas Centre on 01792 463980 or by visiting http://www.dylanthomas.com/festival
