Prospectus

The P G Wodehouse Society (UK) exists to promote the enjoyment of the greatest humorous writer in the history of the English language. A man who wrote more than 70 novels over a period of more than 70 years, who wrote in excess of 300 short stories, contributed at least 800 pieces to about 80 journals and who, by writing more than 200 lyrics for musical comedies, is acknowledged to be one of the founders of the modern stage-musical, can hardly be described in less flattering terms.

Principal Objective

To ensure members can derive the greatest possible fun and pleasure from the wide variety of P G Wodehouse's work, by publications, articles, films, stage productions, radio and television programmes, group discussions, outings, debates, lunches and dinners.
