It's September and a few of the leaves in Swansea's parks and open spaces are turning amber, a very beautiful time of year. Yet the autumn line up is red hot! Events include Green Fuse Festival; Bryn Terfel at BBC Proms in the Park; a Dylan Thomas promenade production and film screenings at Swansea Museum. Let's take a peek.
Interested in Welsh Heritage? This South Wales Miners Talk by Dr Ritchie Wood at Swansea Museum on 6 September, 2pm, is free of charge. It blends experiences of individual South Wales miners with an appreciation of work undertaken by 'womenfolk' at home and abroad.
Friends of Cwmdonkin Park present a day of acoustic music, poetry and the spoken word, art workshops and family fun at Cwmdonkin Park, from midday to 6pm. This free event brings the legacy of Dylan Thomas to families and adults in a park he grew up playing in.
Join us for a season of special screenings. This Sunday’s (7 September) classic film is Gallipoli featuring a young Mel Gibson and Mark Lee. What's more, it's free. Films show fortnightly on Sundays, in the education room.
A 'promenade production', by Lighthouse Theatre Company, in association with Dylan Thomas Centre, takes you through streets of Swansea on Saturday 6 to Sunday 7 September, starts at National Waterfront Museum and ends in Cwmdonkin Park.
BBC’s Proms in the Park returns 13 September as part of the BBC’s wider Last Night of the Proms celebrations. Grammy winner Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel is headlining, with further details to be announced soon. Tickets are available in person or by phone from Swansea Tourist Information Centre - 01792 637300.
