A Celebration of the Centenary of the Birth of Dylan Thomas with Poet John Lindley – Bishops House, Sat 10th May 7.30pm

Posted on May 6, 2014 by


EMBERS COVERBorn in 1914, Dylan Thomas became one of the most successful yet controversial poets of the twentieth century. Regarded with equal amounts of adoration and suspicion in his lifetime, the extraordinary body of work he left after his death at the age of 39 continues, even after the passage of more than 60 years, to divide opinion — enthralling some and infuriating others.

In an evening of poetry and personal anecdote, John Lindley acknowledges the genius, ransacks the rumours and speaks of the eccentricities, comedies and tragedies that ensured Dylanʼs short and colourful life became legendary.

Tickets £5, on the door, complimentary glass of wine or juice for ticketholders
