John Betjeman Bust

Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman lived in Wantage for many years with his wife Penelope & their children. He is fondly remembered in the town & here at the Museum we are very lucky to have been chosen for the site of a new bust of Mr Betjeman.

Sunday 28th August 2016 would have been John’s 110th birthday so to celebrate the event we had a grand unveiling of the bust with some very special guests, Martin Jennings the artist came to unveil the bust along side the well known British actor Edward Fox & Sir John Betjeman’s granddaughter.
