Sir John Betjeman, Poet Laureate, author, broadcaster and journalist, had a long association with Letcombe Regis and lived here between 1951 and 1972. Richmond Letcombe Regis residents will be visiting his home, The Mead (which is now privately owned), on Thursday 28th July, to look around the gardens and enjoy afternoon tea.
In September, Wantage will be celebrating its first ever Betjeman Literary Festival. For information, please visit the Festival website: www.wantagebetjeman.com.
