The Dylan Thomas theatre is the home of Swansea's little theatre, one of Britain's oldest amateur dramatic society founded in the 1920s.

A cheque for £1076.80 was presented to the MND Association at the Dylan Thomas Theatre on Friday 21 April 2017.

SWANSEA WELCOMES TITAN THE ROBOT

The City and County of Swansea are also excited to announce that they will be in the presence of a VERY special guest on the day, that we’re sure the kids love and enjoy. He will be appearing in Castle Square as part of the Clean Air Roadshow. Take the opportunity to sit behind a wheel of the future and experience the technology built in to these beautiful machines first hand. You can also pre-book a test-drive to truly immerse yourself in their power and performance – so that’s mum sorted!

 

Swansea Council are thrilled to announce they have a world-famous guest making an appearance (or 3!) throughout the day, that they're sure the kids will love and enjoy: Titan the Robot!

 

The society renovated the present building in the early 1980s and named it the Dylan Thomas theatre in honour of the poet who was a member of Swansea's little theatre in the 1930s.

 

Swansea little theatre stage six of his own shows per year, and hires out the theatre to other companies, professional and amateur, in order to raise funds for the upkeep of the building.

 

All personnel involved in the running of the theatre are amateurs, and the theatre has charitable status.

 

The Dylan Thomas theatre is situated in the Marina in the Dylan Thomas square.

The cheque was accepted by Jill Jordan (Chair South West Wales MND branch).

 

The money was raised by the City of Swansea Pipe Band at their annual Ceilidh at the New Lodge Social club in Gorseinon on March 25 2017.

 

210 ten people attended the Ceilidh, the first the band have organised for the general public. The band played for 15 minutes with popular pipe band music and then for the rest of the evening and after a hog roast supper there was Ceilidh dancing.

 

Approximately 20 members of the MND Association were at the the presentation organised by Richard Goodwin the bands administrator.

 

The Dylan Thomas Theatre laid on a tea/coffee and cakes morning for the event.

 

Richard Goodwin and Ken Watts presented the cheque to Jill Jordan (Chair South West Wales MND Association).

How the money was raised.

Clean Air Roadshow

If your idea of an electric vehicle is an old milk float, think again…We’ve come a long way since those days; the BMW i8 can do 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds and it looks pretty cool too. Don’t believe us? Come and see for yourself. Take the opportunity to sit behind a wheel of the future and experience the technology built in to these beautiful machines first hand. You can also pre-book a test-drive to truly immerse yourself in their power and performance – Models on show will include everything from the exhilarating BMW i8 to Tesla’s practical 7-seater Model X – along with vehicles from Sinclair, Mitsubishi, My Big Green Fleet and many more! No matter what type of low carbon vehicle you are interested in, there will be something for you.
