A Westerman Exhibition

The Westerman Yarns have been invited to stage an exhibition as part of the fifth Havant Literary Festival, a celebration of the written and spoken word.  The festival takes place during the first ten days of October.  Please watch the festival web site for details.

Sponsorship Invitation
As this is our first public exhibition we are keen to ensure a quality presentation and are seeking sponsorship for the production of twelve, full colour, exhibition panels.  This could be one sole sponsor or several sponsors contributing a share.  All sponsors will be invited to have their logo at the lower edge of each panel. For further information, please email

Join us for a special day in Wareham

At the Westerman Seminar in February this year we discussed the idea of taking the next seminar to Percy's beautiful home town of Wareham, for one year, to visit the site of ‘The Barge’ and the Redcliffe Yacht Club, founded by Percy F. Westerman; their first Commodore. 

I am pleased to inform you that Wareham Town Council have kindly agreed to allow us to hold the next Westerman Seminar in the Council Chamber on Saturday 15th February, 2014. 

Details of the programme are still being developed and we are still accepting ideas and suggestions, but I am really pleased to be taking the seminar to the place that Percy called ‘home’ for the last 40 years of his life.

On Friday 14th February The Friends of the Westerman Yarns will be presenting a Westerman exhibition/display in the Corn Exchange, Wareham (times tbc).

The Westerman Seminar will return to Portsmouth Grammar School in 2015.
