Artists fear for future of Dylan Thomas Centre

28th March 2011

A great number of artists have signed a letter voicing concerns over the future of the Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea.

Dr Who writer Russell T Davies, singer Cerys Matthews and poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy are among the 200 writers, artists and supporters of the centre who have signed the letter.

The centre features a permanent exhibition on the life and works of Thomas, a Welsh poet who died in 1953.

It also boasts a cafe, restaurant and gift shop where posters and memorabilia can be purchased.

Those who have signed the letter are concerned that the Dylan Thomas exhibition could be moved or downgraded.

Councillor Graham Thomas, Swansea Council's cabinet member for culture, recreation and tourism, said the exhibition would remain as and where it is.

'A joint venture alongside the University of Wales will allow us to secure its future during these difficult economic times when finance is limited,' he added.
