Happy St David's Day.

It's March 1st today-St Davids Day.So Happy St David's Day from North Wales.Lots of daffodils in evidence around town today,Welsh cakes being given out,choirs singing etc
.Last night we went to Theatr Clwyd to see Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas.It was a Terry Hands production so we knew it would be good.It was originally written for the radio and as such is quite difficult to transfer to the stage.Terry Hands did a great job.How do these actors remember such long speeches?It amazes me .The Guardian gave it 5 stars.It was good to see the main theatre full.It holds 550 people and we are only a town of 10,000 population.Under Milk Wood is on for three weeks and has been a sell out most nights.We are so lucky to have this theatre five minutes from our house.


  1. And a Happy St. David's Day to you! I love Under Milk Wood - I often listen to the audio of it in the car. Oh and really well done on the Review below - how exciting! xCathy

  2. What a treat to see Under Milk Wood - especially in a full theatre - the atmosphere must have been amazing. Happy day after St David's Day! Jane x

  3. I loved reading Under Milk Wood when I was at school! Ros
