Visit Wales: The Richard Burton Diaries Sweepstakes

The Richard Burton DiariesWin a trip for two to Wales! Visit Wales is holding a sweepstakes to celebrate the publication of The Richard Burton Diaries, praised by the Sunday Times as “a waterfall of pleasure, funny, self-lacerating, highly indiscreet, competitive and rifted with an elegiac melancholy.”

The Grand Prize Includes:

  • 6 day/ 5 night stay with accommodations for two
  • Roundtrip flight to London for two
  • Airport and rail transfers to Wales
  • A private guided excursion to the seaside town, Tenby
  • A tour of Richard Burton’s hometown, Pontrhydyfen
  • A tour the Richard Burton Centre at Swansea University,
  • A meeting with Professor Christopher Williams, editor of The Richard Burton Diaries
  • A viewing of the original draft of the diaries

With the news that Burton will be receiving a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the 85th Academy Awards next weekend, and the continued praise for this “immensely entertaining account,” we thought you also might enjoy a photo we shared on our Tumblr blog, taken backstage with a couple more Hollywood stars during a broadcast interview with Diaries editor, Chris Williams.

  • I loved Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. They were great together. Never anyone else can be like them. Would be such a thrill for me to win this trip. Never won anything like this in my life.
