David Perman explores literary references to the Hertfordshire town of Ware, including the town's most famous artefact, the Great Bed of Ware.

For a small country town, Ware is unusually rich in literary references in both poetry and prose. From Chaucer and Shakespeare to contemporary poetry, David Perman will reveal how the town has been celebrated in words. The Great Bed of Ware will feature, together with descriptions of the town and its surroundings by residents and visitors. Come and enjoy a literary evening in the museum!

David Perman is a poet, publisher, author of a number of books including 'A New History of Ware' and a founding member of Ware Poets. He has played a leading role in many conservation projects in Ware, including the establishment and enlargement of Ware Museum.
