National Storytelling Week -1st -8th February 2014
Wordsworth Bookshop and Café, St Andrews Churchyard, Wales. National Storytelling Week is about giving out to all cultures, tales that give a twinkle to the eye, that raise a question in the mind and stories that have survived the brightness and the shadow of man’s imagination. Storytelling can be found enriching lives everywhere: from nurseries to schools, from bereavement aids in hospitals to strengthening communication in the business sphere, from reminiscence centres to support groups for those with special needs and in theatrical performances. The sharing between teller and listener empowers, feeding the imagination from one generation to the next.

Dylan Thomas : Clown in the Moon 14th -15th February 2014
Grand Theatre , Swansea, Wales. Dylan Marlais Thomas was a Welsh poet and writer who wrote exclusively in English. In addition to poetry, he wrote short stories and scripts for film and radio, which he often performed himself. His public readings, particularly in America, won him great acclaim; his sonorous voice with a subtle Welsh lilt became almost as famous as his works. His best-known works include the “play for voices” Under Milk Wood and the celebrated villanelle for his dying father, “Do not go gentle into that good night”.
