Welcome to the Followers of Rupert
Since 1983 there has been a society, called The Followers of Rupert, for those who remember Rupert from their childhood with affection. The society is limited to classic Rupert, not the cartoon character more recently seen.
The Society gets its name from the Rupert annuals. Each year at the end of the stories there is a page advertising Rupert in the Daily Express and on that page is the slogan "Follow Rupert in the (Daily) Express" and so we are The Followers!
We have hundreds of members who enjoy regular newsletters, calendars and other Rupert-related items produced specifically for the society.
Rupert's Centenary - 100 years old!
Rupert is 99 years old, but this year is his centenary.
Rupert first appeared on 8th November 1920, so this year he will be 100!
We expect there will be plenty of interest in Rupert this year and we have created a page so that we can add information as we hear of Special Events / Publications and such like.
Scroll down and follow the link 'Centenary News' to read more.
