2 - 4 pm, Dec 14, 2014 Bryn Seion Welsh Church, 22132 S. Kamrath Road in Beavercreek, Oregon
Continuing a longstanding Portland tradition, Jonathan Nicholas will give a reading of Dylan Thomas’ much-loved tale “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” at Oregon’s own Welsh heritage church, Bryn Seion . This year’s reading has special significance as it marks the centenary of Wales’ most famous poet and writer (Dylan Thomas, 1914-1953). The Festival Chorus of the Welsh Society of Portland will present a preview of Welsh songs and carols from their upcoming concert for this occasion. Afterwards, everyone is invited for a Welsh Tea - with Welsh cakes and other delicious treats.
Welsh-born Jonathan Nicholas was a columnist for The Oregonian for 26 years.
