Crowdfunding Appeal For Dylan's Birthplace

Owners look at ways of surviving the pandemic

The owners of Dylan Thomas's birthplace in Swansea are turning to crowdfunding as a way of surviving the coronavirus pandemic.

Geoff and Sarah Haden say they still have bills to pay and little support from the government.

So instead they're looking at other ways of surviving the Covid crisis.

"We don't expect handouts or pay intend paying crazy interest rates to invisible lenders. Our plan is simple and has evolved from a number of other successful projects from the hospitality and tourism sectors. It's a plan which helps us through the lean period and gives people a great deal to help secure the Birthplace for future generations," said Geoff.

They have two products on offer:

  • Pay it Forward: Vouchers which can be used for any product on offer at the Birthplace at a 20% discount. So, if you purchase a £100 voucher it will be worth £120. They will be valid for five years.
  • Unique Experiences and Rewards: Choose to have a handwritten poem from one of the many poets who have performed at the Birthplace, buy a limited edition DVD of performances at the house or have your own personal house tour.
