A heads-up about fun to come

19 Feb

AlAmIt’s less than three weeks until Wordsworth House and Garden opens for the new season. There’s lots still to do, but we’re getting really excited. We’re so looking forward to welcoming all our visitors – seeing old friends back again and making many new ones.

There’s so much going on – and I don’t want to spoil the surprises for when you visit – but here’s a taster…

Work is nearly complete on our brilliant new hands-on Wordsworth Room – we’re just waiting for the artist to come and cover the walls with poetry!

In the cellar, my friends John and Will have been beavering away to re-create the Wordsworth family’s larder. Here’s a picture of John lime-washing the walls – but we’re not going to let you see anything else, as we want you to experience this amazing room first-hand.

Our fabulous new garden exhibition made with upcycled textiles, created by local artist Dianne Standen, is just about to be installed. The picture at the top shows Amanda and Alex getting heads-on with some of Dianne’s creations!
