The culmination of a 25-year project, Blake's illustrations go on display for the very first time.

Sir Peter Blake has listened to Under Milk Wood 'at least twice a week' for the past 25 years, sketching, painting and collaging its characters and plot-lines as a means by which to relax.

His beloved past time is the subject of this exhibition, which kicks off a year of celebrations to mark the centenary of Dylan Thomas' birth.

The show includes portraits of each of the cast, watercolours illustrating dream sequences in the play, narratives and locations depicted in collage and photographs taken by Blake in Laugharne in the 1970s.
