MICHAEL Morpurgo, author of the award-winning War Horse, Private Peaceful and Adophus Tips as well as more than 110 other works, gave a talk at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM), the ArtFund's Museum of the Year recently.  

Mr Morpurgo is RAMM's chief patron and a passionate supporter of museums.  In this family evening event entitled 'From All Around the Year to War Horse' he talked about his longstanding connection with and love of Devon, its people and landscape and their place in his stories. 

This was Mr Morpurgo's first public appearance at RAMM since the completion of its multi-million pound refurbishment programme in 2011 and is a fundraising event for the RAMM Development Trust supported by Mount House School, Tavistock, which Mr Morpurgo's son attended. 

Patrick Savage, Mount House headmaster, said: 'Michael Morpurgo is one of the most gifted writers of this age and to have had the chance for pupils, parents and teachers to hear him discuss his home county of Devon and share insights relating to his creative and charitable achievements was thought-provoking, inspirational and highly entertaining.'
