Welsh poet Dylan Thomas was once a Wheatsheaf patron. We would normally celebrate his life on May 14th. Dylan Day. International Dylan Thomas Day. This year we are unable to do this so I have attached a link to a reading of my favourite Dylan Thomas work a Visit to Grandpas. The last time I heard this work, it was performed live at The Wheatsheaf by Guy Masterson (Grandpa) and Dylan Thomas great grandson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_u_wlaV4X8&list=RDj_u_wlaV4X8&start_radio=1&t=0
Located two minutes from London's Oxford Street, we offer an ideal escape from shopping. Nearest tube is Tottenham Court Road.
