The culmination of the DT100 Festival, a 36 hour non-stop reading of Dylan Thomas’ works to celebrate the centenary of his birth in the city of his birth. 2000 people watched a cast of hundreds live on stage at Swansea Grand Theatre. Readers included Sir Ian McKellen, Sian Phillips DBE, Suzanne Packer, Gillian Clarke, Jo Brand, Kevin Eldon, Raki Ayola, Katherine Jenkins, Robert Peston and Nicholas Parsons CBE. Directed by Michael Bogdanov.

“This epic endeavour crowned the Dylan Thomas centenary celebrations in splendid and endearingly eccentric style.”
