EMSWORTH’S most famous son will be celebrated with an inaugural festival starting this weekend.

The author and lyricist P G Wodehouse spent several years living in the village.

Organisers from the successful WemsFest have decided to commemorate him with an eight-day festival which features some of the songs and scripts from the plays and musical comedies he originated.

Among the events lined-up are two evenings of a specially devised production, Anything Goes, which features many famous songs, and dramatised readings of the book about the famous duo Jeeves and Wooster.

Most of the events take place in Emsworth, at The Brookfield Hotel, and The Pavilion at Stansted.
