The Thomas in question is Dylan Thomas, whose 100th anniversary is being celebrated this year with a Festival in his old stomping ground Fitzrovia.
The Festival, ‘Dylan Thomas in Fitzrovia’, is being sponsored by Fitzroy Place and runs from 20th – 26th October. It was officially launched by patrons Griff Rhys Jones and Hannah Ellis, Dylan’s grand-daughter. Also on hand was Owen Teale, fresh from his latest instalment of Game of Thrones, and who will be taking the lead in an acclaimed production of Under Milkwood. Other Festival highlights include a Gala Centenary concert at Queen Elizabeth Hall, featuring Tom Hollander, Sian Phillips and Jonathan Pryce.
