"Take Dylan to the People"

Looking forward to touching around 4000 young people before Easter, the Carmarthenshire local council has made a replica of the shed that Dylan Thomas wrote in, above the Boathouse in Laugharne, Carmarthenshire. For the centenary of Dylan Thomas, the shed is making the rounds on wheels with a poet in residence. See it at the Hay Festival in May, the Royal Welsh Show in July, and later in London. The photo below is from the Dylan Thomas Boathouse & Tea Room Facebook Page.
