The Westerman Exhibition

Westerman Yarns have been invited to display the Percy F. Westerman exhibition ‘Ripping Yarns’ and the Tale of the Missing Author by the WW1 Remembrance Centre at Fort Widley on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th November when the centre will offer free entry. 

This follows some Facebook comments and a letter in The News with criticism that the exhibition outlining the life and works of the prolific Portsmouth born children’s author had debuted at Havant Literary Festival in October and not in Portsmouth. 

I am very grateful to everyone at the WW1 Remembrance Centre for their kind invitation and for their support in ensuring that Percy Westerman and his Great War titles is a feature of their permanent display.

The exhibition is sponsored by J Edwards Funeral Directors (Bedhampton), Portsmouth Grammar School and Mercury Graphics of Havant.
