    ‘One Christmas was so much like another in those days…’
    Dylan Thomas’ A Child’s Christmas in Wales is a seasonal favourite in Wales and beyond, and this wonderful evocation of a child’s delight at the festive season has become famous the world over.

    This timeless Christmas classic story is performed as a monologue by award-winning actor Adrian Metcalfe. The piece has been charming audiences, young and old, ever since its publication over half a century ago. Lighthouse use their unique style to bring new life to the colourful characters of Thomas’ Swansea childhood.

    What better way to prepare for Christmas than a glass and a memory that only Swansea can produce?

    Performed by Adrian Metcalfe, this festive entertainment has been described by the press as ‘masterful one-person story-telling’ and ‘perfect festive fare’.

    This production is produced with the help of the Swansea Grand Theatre, the Arts Council and NightOut.
