Sir John Betjeman fans will not want to miss this talk by freelance lecturer, photographer, publisher and writer Roger Vlitos. After his superb lecture in the 2014 festival about some recently discovered Betjeman papers, Vlitos returns to Wantage with a brand new talk about some recently-discovered Betjeman cartoons. Roger, who has worked as Curator of the Faringdon Collection of Art at Buscot Park for several years, has recently also organised the archives at Faringdon House, owned by author Sofka Zinovieff. Nearly a year ago, Roger and Sofka discovered a treasure trove of delightful images created by the poet. In his lively and accessible style, Roger will reveal what these drawings tell us about the great man and his life in the local area.
A must for all Betjeman aficionados and for everyone who likes cartoons!
