Wordsworth Grasmere, in partnership with Aerial Festival, bring poetry to the people on Stagecoach’s 555 and 599 on Thursday 19 March.

Bus travellers between Windermere and Keswick may be a little surprised when poets Kim Moore and Clare Shaw climb aboard the 555 and 599 buses on Thursday 19 March. Kim and Clare will perform their own contemporary work as well as sharing some of Wordsworth’s words with passengers as they journey through the landscape that inspired some of the Lakes’ greatest poetry – and continues to inspire poets today!

The poets will be performing on the following services:

555 Stagecoach Bus northbound from Grasmere 9.45am to arrive in Keswick 10.14am
599 Stagecoach Bus northbound from Windermere 10.39am to arrive in Grasmere at 11.13am
