Launching Visit Wales ‘YEAR OF LEGENDS’ for 2017

I welcomed journalists from disparate publications, from Wanderlust to the Rough Guide office, from the Telegraph to the Sun newspaper, to join me for lunch at L’escargot in Soho on the 22nd of November.

Together we took a dip in the rich cultural waters of Wales. I read poems and excerpts by RS Thomas, Idris Davies, Dylan Thomas, Dannie Abse and Sioned Davies’ The Mabinogion between the food courses as we were celebrating the launch of @visitwales  ‘Year of Legends’ 2017.

It’s going to be a fun year: Wales’ literature, landscape, castles, monuments, artists, sports and science stars, history and myths are all there for us to enjoy sharing with the rest of the world in the coming months.
