Find out how the Pompey 125 book was produced and support the Pompey History Society

Editor Colin Farmery and designer Ellis Hampton are going to unveil how the critically-acclaimed 125th anniversary history of Portsmouth FC was produced at a special talk at Fratton Park later this month.

The book sold out its limited 1898 print run in just a couple weeks last autumn and the 424-page tome is now widely accepted now as the definitive history of the club.

125 Book

Ellis and Colin will be in conversation with Chris Perry – one of the club’s creative writers in residence for the 125th season – at the Warrior Lounge on Monday March 25 (7pm-9pm). 

There will also be a question and answer session, open to the floor, and Colin will also be revealing more details of a revised and updated paperback version of the book, which is scheduled to be published in August.

The event is free for members of the Pompey History Society and £6 for non-members. Membership of the society can be purchased on the night for £10 annually.

The society is a registered charity with the twin remits of preserving the club’s archive and sharing it with the wider public.
