In this labour of love Alex Williams’ vibrant paintings bring to life Dylan Thomas’s most fabulous poem. The paintings are animated to the accompaniment of the incomparable Richard Burton reading Under Milk Wood as only he can, combining to create an affectionate, colourful portrait of dear old Llareggub. A skilful landscape painter with a wry sense of humour, Alex Williams creates a mesmerising, memorable version of a day in the life of a small Welsh seaside village. Unmissable for any Dylan fan this is the first ever showing in the UK.
