Spooky: Come along and make some silhouette decorations

There’s lots going on for all ages at Wordsworth House and Garden during the autumn school holiday week.

On Saturdays October 27 and November 3, we have a range of special talks and tastings at 11.30am and 2.30pm.

On Sundays October 28 and November 4, come along at 11.30am or 2.30pm to hear about some of the bizarre way Georgians of all classes amused themselves, then try your hand at a game of cards or skittles 18th-century style.

Children can make pastry pumpkins in our working Georgian kitchen on Monday, October 29, from 11am to 3pm.

Tuesday, October 30, is sugar and spice day, with talks about the Georgians’ love of all things sweet and spicy at 11.30am and 2.30pm.

We also have a very special Halloween event that day – artist Rosalie Short will be leading drop-in workshops from 11am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm where you can make some fabulous spooky-themed silhouette decorations.

On Wednesday, October 31, children can roll up their sleeves and learn to make clapbread between 11am and 3pm.

And, finally, on Thursday, November 1, at 11.30am and 2.30pm, the costumed servants will be telling traditional Cumbrian ghost stories by the fire in the kitchen.

So why not come along and join us – and be sure to pop out to the garden and visit me while you’re here!

Normal admission charges apply for all activities. Entry is free for National Trust members.
