Join us this November and December, as we celebrate talents old and new.


After last year’s sell-out performance, Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy headlines the Dylan Thomas Centre’s autumn season. She’ll be reading alongside Gillian Clarke, the National Poet of Wales, on 9 December.


The Dylan Thomas Festival returns for the 14th year from 27 October – 9 November with a variety of events including:


Verbal fi reworks from Joe Dunthorne and Sarah Coles on 7 November. Best known for his novels Submarine and the newly released Wild Abandon, Joe has a pamphlet in Faber’s New Poets series. Sarah’s work has appeared in Planet magazine and Gomer’s recent anthology, Another Country: Haiku Poetry from Wales. Her debut collection will be published by Gomer in 2012.


Also on 7 November, catch celebrated Carcanet poet Patrick McGuinness and Richard Gwyn. Patrick was longlisted for the 2011 Booker Prize for his fi rst novel, The Last Hundred Days, and Richard’s recent book is the acclaimed memoir, The Vagabond’s Breakfast.


The festival closes on 9 November with legendary poet and musician Pete Brown, together with his long time collaborator, musician Phil Ryan. Pete became known as a poet in the sixties, appearing at the Albert Hall Poetry Incarnation in 1965 with Ginsberg, Ferlinghetti and Burroughs. In 1966, he wrote lyrics for Cream, helping create hits including ‘I Feel Free’, ‘White Room’ and ‘Sunshine of Your Love’. Port Talbot-born Phil has collaborated with Pete for many years, joining his band Piblokto


in 1970, before recording and touring with the renowned Welsh rock band, Man, for many years.


As part of the festival, don’t miss the corridor gallery exhibition Lee Miller: Visiting Picasso. Acclaimed photographer Lee Miller, and surrealist writer Roland Penrose, met Picasso on many occasions. Miller charted their remarkable friendship from 1937 to Picasso’s death in 1973. This exhibition offers an intimate portrait of life close to Picasso and includes images from other members of the international surrealist circle.
