The first ever Betjeman Festival is being held between 11th and 17th September, celebrating the work of Betjeman and locally recognised writers and poets. Events include talks, readings, workshops, discussions and concerts, with a stellar line-up of nationally and locally recognised poets, authors and writers.
We are delighted to be hosting a Gala Concert with music from the "Spire" Folk Group and a narration which will retrace some of Jude the Obscure's travels around the local area. The evening will also offer a watercress inspired "Country Buffet" with the delicious menu insired by the once thriving local watercress industry.
Tickets for the evening are £15 (includes buffet supper). To book tickets please see the Betjeman Festival website: www.wantagebetjeman.com, or call the Vale and Downland Museum on 01235 771447.
