'Dylan Day' Events

10.30 am - 'Return Journey'

(departing from Castle Square ending with a chance to tour Dylan's Birthplace)

Lighthouse Theatre’s celebrated promenade performance of Dylan Thomas’ Return Journey on the streets of Swansea makes a welcome ‘return’ for a special one-off this Dylan Day. Starting in Castle Square and finishing in Cwmdonkin Park this two hour show is a unique exploration of the ugly lovely town seen through Dylan’s eyes and memories.

Developed for the Dylan Thomas 100 centenary celebrations it has since been developed into an app and was one of the top three shows of the festival on the BBC Arts Review of the Year 2014.

The performance starts at 10.30 am at Castle Square walking to Cwmdonkin Park. (wet weather venue available).
Finishing by 12.15 pm.

For those that would like to, there will also be a chance to tour Dylan's Birthplace after the performance for a donation.
