If you fancy yourself as a present day Sherlock Holmes, then pop along to Emsworth and start solving the clues.
Scattered throughout the town in various shop windows are picture clues to the titles of crime novels. Pick up a FREE entry form from Emsworth library, the Museum or Bookends and you could win a book token or voucher. There are quizzes for junior detectives too with picture clues to children’s books, plus a children’s colouring competition.
Sadly, the marvellous ‘More than Words’ exhibition featuring book illustrations and pop-ups ended on Sunday, 28 September. But a new exhibition, ‘Earth, Art and Water’, opens in the Museum on Saturday, 3 October, with art inspired by Chichester Harbour and tying in with the Festival theme of ‘Water’.
Poet-in-a-shed Shedman will be in Emsworth Square on Friday and Saturday to entertain and amuse. Havant Literary Festival has certainly come to Emsworth town this year.
So be there! Be in The Square!
Grab a quiz sheet and start eliminating the impossible.
