Listen to spooky stories and have fun with Halloween crafts.

Are you ready for a spooktacular Halloween?

Join us for hot chocolate, gingerbread, and Halloween crafts in our cosy Learning Space.

Children will have fun dressing up in Georgian costumes while learning about the Wordsworths and hearing some of their writing. At twilight we’ll all head over to Dove Cottage and listen to some spooky Cumbrian stories – perfect for a special Halloween in the Lake District!

For families with children aged 3+. To maintain social distancing we will be booking no more than 6 families for this session.
