Follow Dylan Thomas to our local

Dylan Thomas’ (1914-1953) centenary will be celebrated with many events in South Wales throughout the year.

Under_Milk_Wood_PosterThe 1973 film of Under Milk Wood, with Richard Burton, was made in Lower Fishguard.  I remember the houses round the harbour dressed with new shop names and colours for the occasion. The rights of the film have since been gifted, by the director, to the people of Wales.

Should you be interested in marking this significant year while staying at Tegfan, you could walk down to Pwllgwaelod and have a pint at our local ‘Old Sailors’ (or The Sailor’s Safety to give it the name Dylan Thomas would have used). It is said that Dylan Thomas visited the pub in 1951.

About bookvolunteer

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.
