To mark the 70-year anniversary of the first broadcast of Dylan Thomas’ A Child’s Christmas in Wales, Hanan Issa, National Poet of Wales has been commissioned to write a contemporary creative response to the festive classic.

The new piece was commissioned by the Hay Festival in partnership with Literature Wales and was shared for the first time at the Hay Festival Winter Weekend 2022.
