Literature Wales’ A Dylan Odyssey, part of the Welsh Government-led Dylan Thomas 100 Festival in 2014, is an opportunity to experience the very landscapes that inspired his words.
Twenty three totally unique and extraordinary events will take visitors to the very heart of Dylan’s worlds, exploring the richness of these places by boat, canoe, horse-drawn carriage, bus, steam train, foot and horseback. Tours will be guided through the eyes of some of Wales’ best living artists, including comedian Griff Rhys Jones, author and scriptwriter Andrew Davies, actor Helen Griffin, National Poet of Wales Gillian Clarke, former Archdruid T. James Jones and writer Owen Sheers.
One day tours range from £7 - £47 in price. In partnership with Rare Hospitality, Literature Wales is also offering a stunning collection range of residential packages incorporating the gorgeous Welsh Rarebits and Great Little Place country hotels, historic inns and boutique townhouses.
His centenary year invites readers and admirers to rediscover Dylan Thomas and explore some of the myths that surround his name.
A formidable voice when it came to the literature of place, Dylan Thomas left an imprint on the memory of the vast seascapes, village tracks, urban greys, dusky moorlands, brimming meadows and lush parklands he knew.
