In November 2018 - Lights out Trefonen and Oswestry Council are holding an extended week long Wilfred Owen and Armistice Festival - in remembrance of the 100 years and with the unveiling of a newly commsioned full size bronze statue of Owen cast by a local sculptor.

I am on the planning committee for the festival - which will involve all the arts coming together - poetry at its heart - and several talks and high profile guests.

Of course this involves the backing of funding - the committee has already secured funding from The Military Covenant but to draw on this there needs to be a link back to serving personal, ex soldiers or cadets etc that needs to be done in October so not much time.

Is there anyway of a presence from yourselves - couple of representatives to do a reading or two - in honour of David Lewis? Our own Taffy who lived the last years of his lfe in Oswestry.

I would be grateful if you could give this request your consideration.

Thank you and regards

Jan Wilkins

The Wilfred Own and Armistice Day Festival sounds like an interesting and worthwhile event. Hope all the hectic planning comes to fruition and that the hard work is rewarded with a memorable time for everyone taking part...
