This Christmas, BBC Radio 4 will be taking listeners on a host of festive Wombles adventures, narrated by Richard E Grant, directed by Johnny Vegas and based on Elisabeth Beresford’s original books.
The Wombles were part of a limerick round called ‘There Once Was a Quiz Host Called Richard…’.
A new range of limited edition Wombles products is available at Age UK charity shops.
The Wombles showcased their environmental message with an exhibition stand made of reused and recycled objects, including some huge Womble figures made from natural materials.
The island of Alderney has a new Womble trail of five wooden statues, sponsored by local businesses.
An in-depth chat with author Elisabeth Beresford’s daughter about her biography, The Creator Of The Wombles, published in March 2023.
