A brand new exhibition, Dylan: The Lyrical Life of Dylan Thomas, has opened in The Riverside at Haverfordwest, to celebrate the life and work of one of Wales’ best poets.

Although Dylan’s life was short and full of chaos, he was a prolific writer, and this exhibition looks at his work as a poet and playwright. Among the highlights are original manuscripts of his poems, drafts and notes, as well as his famous word list and a sketch of the imaginary village ‘Llareggub’.

The exhibition also celebrates 70 years since the first broadcast of his ‘drama for voices’, Under Milk Wood, and visitors will have the opportunity to see the original script and listen to a selection of clips from the iconic BBC production starring Richard Burton.

The exhibition will also show a selection of unique works of art inspired by Dylan’s life and words over the decades.

Showing alongside the Dylan: The Lyrical Life of Dylan Thomas exhibition is the permanent exhibition Pembrokeshire: Past and Present, focusing on the history, culture and landscape of Pembrokeshire, which will display a selection of new items this season.
