The ‘Love the Words’ Exhibition, based at the Dylan Thomas Centre, tells the story of Dylan’s life, work and legacy, from his birth on 27 October 1914 in Swansea, to his death on 9 November 1953 in New York.

This half term, we’ll be sharing a range of activities based on the animals in Dylan’s poems and stories. We have some unique, newly designed colouring sheets, plus writing prompts which will be great for all ages, and a wordsearch featuring an animal or two that you’d never have guessed Dylan mentioned! We’re also designing some scrap paper finger puppets which families with under 6s will love.

Dylan Thomas wrote movingly about the Three Nights Blitz of Swansea in his radio play, ‘Return Journey’.  We’ll be commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Blitz this February with blogs and activities taking ‘Return Journey’ and other unique perspectives as their starting point. Look out for a ‘write your own’ ‘Return Journey’ activity, a ‘Return Journey’ story map, and an opportunity to create your very own pop up of some of Swansea’s cultural landmarks.
