Audaces fortuna iuvat - fortune favours the bold

Terry Watson was born in 1920 and studied at Oxford under the tutorial guidance of C S Lewis. He went on to teach English at King Henry VIII School in Coventry. He became a leading light in the Coventry Umbrella Club that was formally established in 1955 and continues to this day.

The Umbrella Club supported a wide variety of arts initiatives and many people are grateful to Terry who played such an active role in the development of their abilities.

Amongst his many talents, Terry was a poet and he gave readings of some of his works at numerous public events, including the Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre. These were well received and fondly remembered by those present.

Coventry Umbrella Club has published a selection of his poems under the editorial direction of Bob Wright and this book is now available at all major booksellers (including Amazon) in both softback and e-book formats. The publisher is Earlsdon-based Takahe Publishing Ltd.
