HRH The Prince of Wales visits the Dylan Thomas Birthplace
Royal Patronage of DT100 announced while in house
The culmination of a three year restoration was the opening of the house by Dylan's daughter Aeronwy on the 94th anniversary of Dylan's birth in 2008. The house is as it might have been in 1914 when bought by the Thomas family as a new house. The project could not have happened without a huge team effort from building craftsmen and building suppliers who were followed by the vast number of people involved in furnishing of a whole house over a nine month period.
The visit of Prince Charles came through the efforts of the Welsh Government to involve him in the year long celebration of the centenary of birth of Dylan on 27th October 1914. The announcement that the Prince was to become the Royal patron of DT100 was made while he was at the house.
