Innocent as Strawberries

Exciting news! As part of the Library’s Dylan Thomas Centenary celebrations, the Library – with financial assistance from DT100 and Scottish Power Foundation – have commissioned national children’s theatre company Arad Goch to perform a special theatrical production in the Library to Secondary Schools.

The performance will be based on a series of Dylan Thomas’ poems and short stories dealing with adolescence, drawing inspiration from ‘The Hunchback in the Park’ especially.  You can watch a short animated film of the poem created by the BBC here.

The performance will be held in the ‘Dylan’ exhibition in the Gregynog Gallery between 10th and 14th November.

The exhibition will remain open as usual to the public; although visitors are advised there may be some disruption in the gallery during this period, specifically audio/visual exhibits. The company will also be rehearsing in the space on Friday 7th November, however the gallery will still remain open during this time.

If you are planning a visit to the exhibition between these dates and would like further information regarding the timings of the performances (whether to avoid or catch a glimpse of!), please contact the Library.
