The poet laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, and the National Poet of Wales, Gillian Clarke, are returning to the Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea this December to share and discuss their work.

The event was a sell-out last year and this time looks like being no different, with tickets going so fast that organisers have had to arrange an extra reading.

Earlier this year Duffy published her first collection of poems for six years, The Bees. It was dedicated to Clarke, with whom she manages the website Sheer Poetry, a resource of information about poets by poets for scholars, teachers and poetry lovers everywhere.

The pair will now appear at 4.30pm and 7.30pm on Friday 9 December at the centre. Tickets for the extra performance are on sale at the Dylan Thomas Centre for £12 or £8 concessions. To book, contact the box office on 01792 463980.
