We offer a great range of activities covering key stages 2-4 and are delighted to work with schools and colleges to deliver tailor made programmes to meet their needs.
We also offer educational sessions which bring the world of literature and history to life. This unique setting provides a great space for youngsters and adults to learn and understand more about Dylan’s work or the writers and events of his generation.
We welcome students from age 4 to 80 and groups of varying sizes.
We are happy to accommodate private visits by appointment out of season and also offer an exciting theatre in education performance schedule during the school year.
What a visit can offer your group
What we do here at Dylan's Birthplace is truly unique. It is the only Dylan Thomas based 'attraction' where you get a fully guided personal tour by knowledgeable guides. The house however, is not a museum. We refer to it as a living house. There are no red ropes and you are able to immerse yourself in the surroundings of this lovingly restored Edwardian home complete with period style furnishings all helping visitors get a feel for the day to day lives of the Thomas family and those living in the Edwardian era.
Topics we cover include...
- The history and amazing restoration of 5 Cwmdonkin Drive
- Dylan's family tree
- The social landscape in which Dylan was born (The Great War)
- Dylan's early School years
- The Grammar School years
- his inspirations from the surrounding area
- The early works
- Dylan: The meticulous craftsman
- Breakthrough and making it in the literary circles
- Dylan's war work
- later life and untimely death
We hope visitors will compose their own story, poem or song as part of the learning experience – not for nothing is the Birthplace known as a house of inspiration
