We’ve been delighted to see that Dylan Thomas has been the inspiration for some wonderful performances and creativity during our period of lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and we thought we’d collect some to share on this page.

A wonderful socially distanced excerpt from Under Milk Wood performed by alumni of the West Glamorgan Youth Theatre Company. You might spot some familiar voices and faces.

Cerys Matthews has gone on to read further extracts from Dylan’s work for the PM programme.

Actor Sam West has been recording requested poems each day during lockdown for a Pandemic Poems project. Fern Hill was his first recording of a Dylan Thomas poem. We would highly recommend West’s daily readings as a wonderful way to discover new poems and poets.

This is a lovely film shot during lockdown in Italy at the beautiful Gardens of Ninfa. It takes a look at the story of one of Dylan’s patrons, Marguerite Caetani, and includes two of Dylan’s poems beautifully read in Italian.

Swansea’s Lighthouse Theatre have produced this lovely adaptation of Dylan’s much-loved 1947 radio broadcast Return Journey.

Although recorded just before lockdown, we thought you might like to hear American poet Greg Brownderville’s talk on Dylan Thomas.

Recordings of Dylan Thomas’s words have been appearing regularly on social media, here are a few we’ve spotted.

We hope there’ll be more Dylan Thomas inspiration to enjoy during these difficult times, particularly on May 14th, International Dylan Thomas Day. If you know of any we might have missed, perhaps add them as a comment on this post. Stay safe.
