FROM THE CHAIRMAN
Welcome to this new website for the Dylan Thomas Society of Great Britain. Although based and rooted in Dylan’s home town of SWANSEA in South Wales we are open to, and welcome members from around the globe and already keep in contact with Dylan Thomas societies in Australia, Canada and the U.S.A.
It is our aim to use the web, this site and new social opportunities to encourage new members from around the world to join and become involved with the society and enjoy with us the continuing study and enjoyment of the life and work of DYLAN THOMAS.
We now have a dedicated e-mail address where members [and non members wishing to join] can access officers of the Society: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is particularly timely as we approach the forthcoming Centenary year in 2014 and already a plethora of events are being mooted and planned and a website for this has just gone live at: www.dt100.info
A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT HANNAH ELLIS THOMASI am delighted to have taken on the role of president of the Dylan Thomas Society of Great Britain. I am very proud that the society has members that are passionate about my Grandfather’s writing, and who have worked tirelessly for many years to ensure the wealth of work he created, in just thirty nine years, is celebrated.
(THIS WAS A GREAT EPIC AFTERNOON – MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO CAME – IF YOU MISSED IT PLEASE JOIN US NEXT YEAR)
THE BIRTHDAY LUNCHEON
Last Sundays’s Birthday Luncheon was a very enjoyable if somewhat epic afternoon. Some 80 odd guests enjoyed very fine food and good company at Swansea’s elegant Sketty hall where Suzette and her young staff really looked after us and the chef and his team did a fine job. We were thrilled that our President Hannah Ellis could join us with her family for the afternoon and she once again addressed us on developments which are ongoing towards the 2014 Centenary Celebrations.
Guy Masterson flew in from Belfast and entertained us with a dazzling verbal autobiography, interesting throughout but very much so when he explained how through his friendship with his Uncle, Richard Burton, he discovered the beauty and power of the works of Dylan Thomas
It is hoped that even more of you will attend next years Luncheon and we hope to announce our next speaker shortly.
