April and May events in Cwmdonkin Park.

This promises to be another great day of live music and spoken word performances. Come and see workshops, try your hand at tree-wrapping, see characters from the Mabinogion. Visitors and performers will be able to bring memories of a Welsh Mam in their lives and display their tributes on the special wall built for the occasion.

This event schedule is not complete, but will give you a guide to what is happening this year from February to August 2014.

These are brief details of the local authority's own schedule of events in Cwmdonkin Park for December 2013 and January 2014.

Dylan Thomas Inspired Session

Dylan Thomas 100 is launching the first ever Dylan Day on the 27th October using the online community to record as many Dylan Thomas poems as we can between us. Dylan Thomas was an advocate for new media embracing the latest communication methods for the broadcast of many of his works. In the spirit of this we want you use your smartphones to record 6 seconds of yourself reading a line of Dylan Thomas' poetry and send it to dylanthomas100.org, who will then edit all the clips together to create the completed poems!

Since people seem to have enjoyed the day so much, here is some You Tube footage from the day, and some links to podcasts and images.
