Monday 27th October 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Dylan Thomas. Celebrations of the Welsh poet are happening around the World this week, and we want you all to be involved.

Last year we celebrated by creating 6 new readings of his poems line-by-line using the mobile app Vine. This year it’s even simpler. Using Vine or the video function on Instagram we want you to use your mobile phone to record a birthday message to Dylan Thomas, on what would have been his 100th year. Then tweet us @dylanthomas, using the #HappyBirthdayDylanThomas, and we’ll compile them into one big birthday video celebrating the life of Dylan Thomas.

So raise a glass, sing happy birthday, recite your favourite quote… whatever you want to say to Dylan Thomas on this momentous anniversary, send it in on the weekend of Friday 24th to Monday 27th October and be a part of the celebrations.
