The sixteenth annual Dylan Thomas Festival returns to Swansea from 27 October until 9 November 2013.


With the Dylan Thomas Centre as its hub, the festival will showcase new and existing talent in an exciting programme of prose, poetry, music and drama.


Highlights include a night of readings from Dylan’s work in his old local, The Uplands Tavern, the while Fluellen Theatre Company will preview their new production of Dylan’s 'Rebecca’s Daughters.'


Perhaps most uniquely, the Festival will join forces with the Bluestocking Lounge to present ‘Wordy Shapes of Women’, a night where burlesque collides with Dylan Thomas’ poetry! The show is preceded by a free creative writing workshop led by performer and poet Primrose Proper.


Jo Furber, Swansea Council’s Literature Officer, said "We are thrilled to welcome our impressive range of talented guests to the 2013 Festival.


“This year’s festival will be especially exciting as we lead up to Dylan Thomas’ centenary in 2014”.
