Prince Charles reads Fern Hill

Clarence House

In celebration of National Poetry Day listen to the Dylan Thomas 100 Festival's Royal Patron HRH Prince of Wales reading Fern Hill.

The Prince of Wales said "for National Poetry Day, I was very glad, if somewhat hesitant! – to be able to record a reading of one of my personal favourites, 'Fern Hill', with its poignant and moving evocation of a rural west Wales childhood. I cannot help feeling this is one of the great legacies of Thomas's poetry – that it inspires people to appreciate the incomparable landscape of Wales."
