THERE are just a few days left to capture the magic of one of the country’s greatest comic writers.

The PG Wodehouse Festival, organised by the people behind Wemsfest, has been a great success.

The author and lyricist spent several years living in Emsworth where the bulk of the festival’s events are taking place.

Organiser Mark Ringwood said: ‘For a first festival it’s actually going extremely well and we’re confident that we can build on this year to create a celebration of PG Wodehouse on an annual basis.’

Anything Goes, a specially devised production featuring many of his famous songs, is showing at The Brookfield Hotel, Havant Road, Emsworth, on Thursday and Friday night.

Children from local nurseries and pre-schools were invited to paint, colour or collage the PG Wodehouse Blandings Pig.

Their entries are on display in Emsworth library window and members of the public can get a voting form from the library and vote for their favourite picture in each age category until Saturday.

Local shops are displaying Wodehouse books in their windows. Spot all 14 and you could win a prize. Go to wemsfest.com/wodehouse.
