WORD-HOARD IMAGE WORDSWORTH HOUSE AND GARDEN


OWN AN ORIGINAL


‘Sun-scald’, celebrating a Sussex expression for sun on water, will be sold in the auction


Wordsworth House’s stunning Word-Hoard photographic exhibition closes on Sunday 3rd September and the following week, there will be a chance to buy the original images.


The Word-Hoard: Love letters to our land celebrates the beauty of our landscape and the evocative language once used to describe it and is a particularly appropriate exhibition for poet William’s childhood home.


Guest-curated by award-winning author Robert Macfarlane, it builds on themes he explored in his best-selling book Landmarks and features endangered words for natural features and phenomena that he has collected.


The breathtaking images used to illustrate these colourful terms were taken by his parents, Cumbrian-based photographers Rosamund and John.


They have generously donated the framed works, which have hand-drawn definitions by renowned calligrapher Susie Leiper on the mounts, to the National Trust.


‘Shreep’, illustrating an East Anglian word for mist clearing slowly, is available to buy


The Trust is


auctioning them off at Wordsworth House on Thursday 7th September, with proceeds of


the


sale, which starts at 7.30pm, helping to fund conservation work in the North Lakes countryside.


Tickets for the sale are free, but places are limited. To reserve yours, email wordsworthhouse@nationaltrust.org.uk. There is a catalogue of lots at https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/wordsworth-house.

Wordsworth House’s second exhibition of the year, Objects of Celebrity #1 The Bowder Stone, tells the fascinating story of ‘The Biggest Rock in the World’ and the early thrill-seeking tourists who flocked to Borrowdale to see it.

THE PROFESSOR OF ADVENTURE!


Imagine being a fly on the wall watching Millican Dalton enduring the winter in his Cave Hotel under Castle Crag in Borrowdale.


Now, thanks to an exclusive performance of ‘The Professor of Adventure’ the moving one man show written and performed by Peter Macqueen that’s being staged in Millican Dalton’s cave, there’s a unique opportunity to do just that.


Coming to the cave for one day only on Saturday 16th September, Peter has worked with the National Trust and Theatre by the Lake to create this special performance in honour of Millican Dalton’s 150th anniversary.


Peter says: “I have got to know Millican Dalton pretty well over the last 18 months, performing in theatres and village halls around the county and beyond.


“In this, his 150th anniversary year, I wanted to celebrate him in a special way. What better than to perform in his own 'Cave Hotel' under the very rock that was his roof, surrounded by the slates he sat and slept on and allow the magic of Borrowdale and the spirit of the man to do the rest.”


Tickets cost £20.00 (adult) or £17.00 (child) and are available from www.theatrebythelake.com
