Prince Charles to help mark Dylan Thomas centenary


Prince Charles has become a patron of the year-long festival planned to mark the centenary in 2014 of the birth of the poet Dylan Thomas.

The prince visited the Swansea house, 5 Cwmdonkin Drive, Uplands, where Thomas was born and brought up.

The festival, Dylan Thomas 100, aims to highlight the artistic, cultural and commercial importance of Thomas's work.

The director of the film version of his play Under Milk Wood this week gifted its rights to the people of Wales.

The prince also visited Tata Steel in Port Talbot and attended a carol service in Carmarthenshire.
