Celebrating Dylan Thomas with 'A Child's Christmas in Wales'
This wonderful event celebrates both Christmas and Dylan Thomas, taking place at the Dylan Thomas Centre this evening.
By: Dylan Thomas Centre
An adaption of ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’, first recorded by the world-famous poet in 1952, will make up the second half of a Fluellen Theatre Company yuletide celebration at Swansea’s Dylan Thomas Centre on Thursday December 12.
A performance of the piece takes place at 7pm, which is supplemented by readings from other favourite Christmas texts and carols. Both events feature Delyth Jenkins on harp.
The story of ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’ is an anecdotal re-telling of Christmas from the view of young child. It’s seen by many as a romanticised version of Christmases past, depicting a nostalgic and simpler time.
Jo Furber, Swansea Council’s Literature Officer, said: “Our strong relationship with Fluellen has meant that we’ve developed the performance to be engaging, enjoyable and educational. Time after time I’m impressed by the top quality of performance that Fluellen has put on for us at the Dylan Thomas Centre, and their festive special will prove no different.
“I’d urge people to get their tickets soon – the 7pm performance is nearly sold out - and make sure they don’t miss out on a high-quality event that’s sure to generate a terrific Christmas atmosphere.”
Fluellen has devised many original presentations on the life and works of Dylan Thomas. They’ve regularly interpreted works like ‘Under Milk Wood’ and ‘The Doctor and The Devils’ in venues across Swansea and the rest of south west Wales.
Tickets cost from £4 to £6.50. Tickets for the evening performance include a glass of mulled wine. Visit www.dylanthomas.com to book or call 01792 463980.
