Poet in the City presented a special celebration of Dylan Thomas, as part of the Dylan Thomas 100 Festival, in this centenary year. We follow Thomas from Swansea to London and New York in an event which celebrated the life and work of Wales’ greatest poet.

Classics like Do not go gentle into that good night and Under Milk Wood sit alongside fresh revivals of less familiar but equally compelling works as we explore the myriad voices of this unique figure in Modern literature.
