Drop-in afternoons for budding writers and outdoor adventurers.

Each month we have a different theme, introducing the Wordsworths and their writing before getting creative with activities and crafts. These afternoon sessions will inspire and delight children as they explore the natural world right on the Wordsworths’ doorstep.

On 7 April it’s William Wordsworth’s birthday! What were birthdays like when Wordsworth lived at Dove Cottage? Play a Georgian parlour game and make birthday invitations before heading outdoors to craft creative presents using natural materials.

Drop-in for families with children of all ages.
