Event Description

The Dylathon is a 36-hour marathon, non-stop reading of the works of Dylan Thomas and is a chance to celebrate Thomas' works on the centenary of his birth and will feature stars like Michael Sheen, Rob Brydon and Matthew Rhys, and many more.

The show contains a mix of Thomas’ poems, short stories, broadcasts, letters and Under Milk Wood. It will feature hundreds of participants; live on stage, from the worlds of broadcasting, film, theatre, sport, politics and literature together with school children, young people, choirs and community groups to create an epic celebration of the 20th Century’s greatest lyrical poet.

You can book tickets for the entire Dylathon, ensuring you see all the stars taking part and hear all the readings. Make Swansea Grand Theatre your home for 36 hours and immerse yourself in this incredible experience, never to be repeated. 

There will be breaks every two and three quarter hours so you can grab some food or some fresh air and get some sleep (which is fine!). You'll have the same seat for the whole 36 hour show.

You can also choose to come for 12 hours, or for a 3 hour section, so you pick which section of the epic performance you wish to see - begin at the beginning, or cheer the epic conclusion!
