Details have been revealed today of events which will make the centenary of the birth of poet Dylan Thomas.
A year-long programme, taking place in 2014, will feature recitals, plays and workshops in venues across Wales.
The Welsh poet was born in 1914 in Swansea, and is most famous for works such as 'Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night' and 'Under Milk Wood.'
The aim of the festival next year is to give Dylan Thomas even greater prominence.
A special exhibition of new illustrations of Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood will be shown at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff from this evening until next March as a way to kick-start the festival.
