A series of unique Dylan Thomas-inspired literary tours

See his world through his places, his people and his words

May – November 2014

Wales // England // USA


Dylan Thomas (1914 - 1953) is Wales’ best known poet. Literature Wales has crafted a series of 23 one-off extraordinary experiences which will take you to the very heart of his worlds - the vast seascapes, village tracks, urban greys, dusky moorlands, brimming meadows and lush parklands stretching from Greenwich Village to Laugharne, New Quay, Fitzrovia, Swansea, Oxford, Gower and Llanybri. With the help of some of Wales’ best living artists including comedian Griff Rhys Jones, author and scriptwriter Andrew Davies, actor Helen Griffin, National Poet of Wales Gillian Clarke, former Archdruid T. James Jones and writer Owen Sheers - we will explore the richness of Welsh landscapes, hospitality, culture and gastronomy by boat, canoe, horse-drawn carriage, bus, steam train, foot and horseback.

JOIN US FOR A GLIMPSE INTO DYLAN’S WORLD THROUGH HIS PLACES, HIS PEOPLE AND HIS WORDS. You don’t have to be an experienced rambler, cyclist, horse-rider or sailor to take part – check each individual tour listing for difficulty ratings.

The tour includes the ‘Dylan’s Swansea’ exhibition at Swansea Museum (which Dylan reputedly called “a museum which belongs in a museum”), a talk by Sidney Roe, who grew up with Dylan and experienced the Swansea Blitz, and a screening of some of his propaganda films in La Charrette, a cinema within an old train carriage.

ONE DAY LITERARY TOURS AND RESIDENTIAL LITERARY TOURS TERMS AND CONDITIONS Weather Conditions

Tours will take place regardless of weather conditions, unless they present a risk to health and safety. Bad weather does not constitute a valid reason for your cancelling the tour and should you wish to do so on the day then Literature Wales regrets that a refund cannot be made.

One Day Literary Tours Cancellation Policy

Due to the financial and administrative commitments of organising the literary tours, the income they generate must be guaranteed. A refund may be made if reasonable notice is given (minimum 28 days) but this will be subject to a 20% administrative charge. Tour places may be cancelled within the 28 day notice period but a refund will only be given if the tour place is resold by Literature Wales. The refund will also be subject to a 20% administrative charge. Literature Wales reserves the right to cancel one day tours in case of illness or any other circumstances beyond our control. In the case of a tour being cancelled every effort will be made to contact you in advance and a full refund of monies paid will be made. Literature Wales reserves the right to refuse to take anyone on a tour who is, or appears to be, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or anyone whose behaviour is detrimental to the enjoyment of other tour participants.

Residential Literary Tour Deposit and Cancellation Policy

The financial and administrative commitments in the case of residential tours are even greater. A deposit of 20% of the tour cost will be requested in the case of tour places ordered more than 28 days before the tour date. This deposit will be nonrefundable in the event of cancellation or failure to pay the remainder of the balance. The remainder of the tour

21

cost will be payable 28 days before the tour date. Bookings made less than 28 days before the tour date must be paid in full. Residential tour places may be cancelled within the 28 day period but a refund will only be given if the tour place is resold by Literature Wales. The refund will also be subject to a 20% charge. Literature Wales reserves the right to cancel residential tours, for example, when the minimum number of bookings required to operate a tour is not reached. We will not cancel a residential tour later than 28 days before the tour date, except for reasons of Force Majeure (a full refund will be provided in such cases). Individual tour places may also be cancelled later than 28 days before the tour date if you fail to pay the final balance. Literature Wales reserves the right to refuse to take anyone on a tour who is, or appears to be, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or anyone whose behaviour is detrimental to the enjoyment of other tour participants.

Changes to the Tour

Sometimes circumstances beyond Literature Wales’ control dictate minor alterations to a tour. Examples of minor alterations include, but are not limited to, a change in part of the route, or the substitution of hotels and restaurants. Should this occur, an alternative of equal quality and value will be offered.

Come Prepared and Be Prepared

Please make sure that you are dressed appropriately and are sufficiently fit for the tour. The tours are conducted in a variety of locations and conditions and you must ensure that you are adequately equipped and physically able to cope with their demands as some routes will include footpaths and uneven surfaces which may be muddy or overgrown. Further information about the level of difficulty is included

in the tours’ descriptions. More specific requirements will be sent well in advance of the tour.

Accessibility

The tours are conducted in a variety of locations and some may not be wheelchair accessible. Please refer to the tour description before making your booking.

Accident or Loss

Tour participants are responsible for their own personal safety and possessions at all times. Literature Wales accepts no liability for injury, loss, damage, inconvenience or direct or consequential loss, however caused, unless due to our employees’ negligence. Literature Wales does not own or manage the venues, locations, vehicles and all other modes of transportation employed during literary tours (e.g. horses, canoes, boats etc) and is not liable for loss or damage caused by the proprietors or operators of venues, locations vehicles and all other modes of transportation used or visited as part of the tour.

Personal Insurance

It is the individual’s responsibility to decide whether they wish to take out personal insurance. However, this is recommended by Literature Wales, especially in the case of residential literary tours.

Privacy Policy

All personal data supplied will be securely held by Literature Wales and not passed on to any third party. For further information Literature Wales’ corporate privacy policy can be viewed on its website or is available by request by contacting Literature Wales by telephone or by post.

TEITHIAU LLENYDDOL UNDYDD A PHRESWYL TELERAU AC AMODAU Cyflwr y Tywydd Bydd y teithiau’n cael eu cynnal ym mhob tywydd, heblaw bod perygl i iechyd a diogelwch. Ni fydd tywydd gwael yn rheswm teilwng i ganslo taith ac, os ydych am wneud ar y diwrnod, ni fydd Llenyddiaeth Cymru yn cynnig ad-daliad. Polisi Canslo Teithiau Undydd O ganlyniad i’r ymrwymiadau ariannol a gweinyddol a ddaw o drefnu’r teithiau llenyddol, mae’n rhaid gwarantu’r incwm a gynhyrchir. Gellir cynnig ad-daliad os darperir rhybudd rhesymol (lleiafswm o 28 niwrnod) ond caiff ffi gweinyddol o 20% ei gymryd o’r ad-daliad. Gallwch ganslo taith o fewn y cyfnod rhybudd o 28 diwrnod ond cynigir addaliad dim ond os fydd Llenyddiaeth Cymru yn llwyddo i’w ail-werthu. Caiff ffi o 20% ei gymryd o’r ad-daliad hwn yn ogystal. Mae Llenyddiaeth Cymru yn cadw’r hawl i ganslo taith undydd mewn achos o salwch neu unrhyw amgylchiadau eraill sydd tu hwnt i’n rheolaeth. Os bydd taith yn cael ei chanslo mi fydd Llenyddiaeth Cymru yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gysylltu â chi o flaen llaw ac yn darparu addaliad llawn. Mae Llenyddiaeth Cymru yn cadw’r hawl i wrthod gadael unrhyw un ar daith sydd, neu sy’n ymddangos i fod, o dan ddylanwad alcohol neu gyffuriau, neu unrhyw un sydd yn ymddwyn mewn ffordd sydd yn niweidiol i fwynhad y bobl eraill ar y daith. Polisi Canslo Teithiau Preswyl Yn achos teithiau preswyl, mae’r ymrwymiadau ariannol a gweinyddol yn fwy sylweddol. Rhaid talu blaendal o 20% o gost y daith pan archebir lle dros 28 niwrnod cyn dyddiad y daith. Ni ad-delir y blaendal os fyddwch yn canslo eich lle neu’n methu â thalu gweddill y balans terfynol. Bydd gweddill cost y daith yn ddyledus 28 niwrnod cyn dyddiad y daith. Rhaid talu’r swm llawn os archebir lle yn llai na 28 niwrnod cyn dyddiad y daith.

Gallwch ganslo lle ar daith breswyl o fewn y cyfnod rhybudd o 28 niwrnod ond cynigir ad-daliad os fydd Llenyddiaeth Cymru yn llwyddo i ail-werthu’r tocyn yn unig. Bydd ffi o 20% yn cael ei dynnu o’r ad-daliad yn ogystal. Mae Llenyddiaeth Cymru yn cadw’r hawl i ganslo taith breswyl, er enghraifft, os na fydd yn llwyddo i werthu’r nifer angenrheidiol o docynnau i gynnal y daith. Ni fyddwn yn canslo taith yn hwyrach na 28 niwrnod cyn dyddiad y daith heblaw am resymau Force Majeure (cynigir ad-daliad llawn mewn achos o’r fath). Gall lleoedd unigol ar deithiau gael eu canslo yn ogystal os fyddwch yn methu â thalu'r balans terfynol. Mae Llenyddiaeth Cymru yn cadw’r hawl i wrthod gadael unrhyw un ar daith sydd, neu sy’n ymddangos i fod, o dan ddylanwad alcohol neu gyffuriau, neu unrhyw un sydd yn ymddwyn mewn ffordd sydd yn niweidiol i fwynhad y bobl eraill ar y daith. Newidiadau i’r Daith Yn achlysurol gall amgylchiadau tu hwnt i reolaeth Llenyddiaeth Cymru arwain at newidiadau mân i’r daith. Mae engreifftiau o newidiadau posib yn cynnwys, ond heb fod yn gyfyngedig i, newidiadau i ran o lwybr y daith neu gyfnewid gwesty neu fwyty. Mewn achos o’r fath, bydd dewis arall o werth cyfatebol yn cael ei gynnig yn ei le. Gwisgo’n Addas Sicrhewch eich bod wedi gwisgo’n addas ac yn ddigon heini ar gyfer y daith. Cynhelir y teithiau mewn amrywiaeth o amgylchiadau ac mae’n rhaid ichi sicrhau eich bod yn meddu ar y cyfarpar cywir ac â'r gallu corfforol i ymdrîn â gofynion y daith oherwydd bydd rhai ohonynt yn cynnwys llwybrau anwastad a fydd yn fwdlyd ac wedi eu gorchuddio gan ordyfiant. Ceir gwybodaeth bellach am lefelau anhawster y teithiau yn eu disgrifiadau. Anfonir manylion am y gofyniadau penodol atoch chi ymhell cyn y daith.

Hygyrchedd Cynhelir y teithiau mewn amrywiaeth o leoliadau ac efallai na fydd rhai o’r rhain yn hygyrch i gadair olwyn. Cyfeiriwch at ddisgrifiad y daith cyn archebu. Damwain neu Golled Mae’r rhai sy’n cymryd rhan yn y teithiau yn gyfrifol am eu diogelwch personol a’u heiddo ar bob achlysur. Nid yw Llenyddiaeth Cymru yn derbyn cyfrifoldeb am unrhyw anaf, colled, difrod, anhwylder, neu golled uniongyrchol neu ganlyniadol, pa bynnag fodd yr achosir, heblaw bod aelod o’n staff wedi bod yn ddiofal. Nid ydym yn berchen neu’n rheoli’r lleoliadau, mannau cyfarfod, cerbydau nac unrhyw fodd arall o deithio a ddefnyddir yn ystod taith lenyddol (e.e. ceffylau, canŵs, cychod ayyb.) ac nid yw Llenyddiaeth Cymru yn gyfrifol am golled neu ddamwain a achosir gan berchnogion neu reolwyr lleoliadau, mannau cyfarfod, cerbydau ac unrhyw fodd arall o deithio a ddefnyddir neu a ymwelir â hwy fel rhan o’r daith. Yswiriant Personol Cyfrifoldeb yr unigolyn yw penderfynu os ydyw eisiau cymryd yswiriant ai peidio. Serch hynny, mae Llenyddiaeth Cymru yn argymell hyn, yn enwedig yn achos teithiau llenyddol preswyl. Polisi Preifatrwydd Bydd yr holl wybodaeth bersonol a roddir yn cael ei gadw’n ddiogel gan Llenyddiaeth Cymru ac ni fydd yn cael ei rannu â thrydydd parti. Am wybodaeth bellach gellir gweld polisi preifatrwydd corfforaethol Llenyddiaeth Cymru ar ei gwefan neu trwy gais trwy gysylltu â Llenyddiaeth Cymru dros y ffôn neu trwy'r post.
