Poetry Wales Autumn issue launch at the Do Not Go Gentle Festival

Dylan Thomas Birthplace, 5 Cwmdonkin Drive, Swansea

3-4pm Sunday 26th October


Poetry Wales is delighted to be launching its Autumn issue at the Dylan Thomas Birthplace at this year’s Do Not Go Gentle festival in Swansea’s Uplands. We’ll be taking poetry well and truly off the page and into the air.

Peter Finch has been ripping up and refashioning the written word for decades.  He’ll be performing a new sound piece based on Dylan Thomas and we’ll also present a mini-retrospective of his visual work – featured in Poetry Wales‘s autumn issue. He’ll be joined by the bilingual performer Rhys Trimble who will also be doing an avant garde tribute to Dylan, Katrin Lloyd, Swansea-based poet Richard James Jones and other poets to be confirmed. All welcome!

Join us at Dylan’s first home – 5 Cwmdonkin Drive as part of the Do Not Go Gentle Festival from 3pm.
