Doctor Who Day at the Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea

The Dylan Thomas Festival to be invaded by Daleks

To celebrate the 50th anniversary, the 2013 Dylan Thomas Festival in Swansea, Wales will be hosting a Doctor Who Day on Saturday 2 November.  Yours truly (TTZ's editor) is organising it, and we'd love to see you there.  

We have historians Matthew Kilburn and Alwyn Turner talking about 1963 and Terry Nation.  We have Peter Miles, he of many villainous Who roles but especially remembered for Nyder from "Genesis of the Daleks," in conversation with Phil Parsons and his Dalek collection.

We have comics mastermind Mike Collins giving an art workshop for kids (it's practically sold out so get your tickets now!).  

We have a Writers' Panel with Phil Ford of The Sarah Jane Adventures, James Moran, Joseph Lidster, Una McCormack, David Llewellyn, and Simon Guerrier.

We have an evening celebration with the one and only Louise Jameson reading Dylan Thomas poetry (you don't get that very often!).

It looks to be a fun and interesting event, a little different from your traditional conventions and a little different from the other events during the Festival.  It's also a fair bit more affordable than the average convention.   

We would love to see you there! 

The Dylan Thomas Festival runs from 27 October – 9 November.

2014 will mark the centenary of the birth of Dylan Thomas in Swansea and a series of events are being planned to commemorate one of the world’s greatest poets.
