    On 14 May 1953, Dylan Thomas and the cast of the first full stage production of Under Milk Wood stepped onto the stage of New York’s Poetry Center, guided by Dylan’s direction to ‘love the words’. We celebrate the 70th anniversary of this performance with an Exhibition featuring objects from our Collection which illustrate some of the ways it’s been interpreted over the years.

    We’re currently open from 10am to 4.30pm, from Wednesday to Sunday (and Bank Holidays).
