Join us for a magical afternoon of acoustic music and spoken word, featuring bands, solo artists, classical guitarists, storytellers, poets and activities on Saturday 1st June 2013

As part of the Dylan Down the Ups community group’s programme to celebrate Dylan Thomas’ centenary, The Colour of Saying creative writing competition has attracted the sponsorship of a local poet and an American publisher.

The Friends of Cwmdonkin Park invite you to make your submissions to their photographic competition - "Scenes from Cwmdonkin Park"

One of the nice things to emerge from the regeneration of the park is the new tea room. Looking out over the bowling green, there are outdoor picnic tables for sunny days and three small tables inside for when you need to huddle against the cold.

These are brief details of the local authority's own schedule of events in Cwmdonkin Park for spring 2013

The keys for the new pavilion are being handed over on 28th March at 12.00 in the Park. The Press will be there and we would like you all to join us for this event, to show your support. Please do attend if you are able. We look forward to seeing you there!

You are invited to a coffee morning on Saturday 16th March from 10.00 am to 12.00 am at the Dylan Thomas House, Swansea - on behalf of the Friends of Cwmdonkin Park.

There will be a cake stall and a raffle.

Tickets are £5.00 and include house tour, tea and cake.

It's a little sentimental to write about the loss of a tree in too sad terms, but at 4 am on Sunday 15th July, the wet weather claimed its second tree casualty of the summer. The large cherry tree at the top of the park, whose flowers in spring have been a feature of the site for decades, came crashing to the ground, completely blocking the path. If that had been 4 pm, theere would have been a good chance that people would have been walking there.

The Friends of Cwmdonkin are looking for ideas for events in the park which they can sponsor once the work on improvement is concluded. A small group has been tasked with selecting the best suggestions. So if you have any ideas, you can either use the contact form to let us know, or you can email us directly.

The Friends are holding a coffee morning at 11 am on Monday 16 April at the Mansion House, Swansea

Cost per head is cost £5.

The Lord Mayor will be opening the event and there will be performances from the members of the Dylan Thomas Theatre.

There will be a raffle and a cake stall and an opportunity to experience a Victorian's statement of success in the building he made!
