This event has now passed, find out what else is going on at Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum



As the nights draw in and the days grow colder, it is the time of year to use the winter as the Romantics did – to read, to learn, and to share stories in good company. Pull up a chair in our new café and enjoy a short informal talk on a topic connected to the Wordsworths – all with a hot drink and a seasonal bake close to hand, and led by our knowledgeable staff and trainees!

This week, discover more about Wordsworth and the Grasmere Volunteers. Why did Wordsworth enlist in the Grasmere Volunteers during the Napoleonic Wars – and what was being a volunteer like?
