3.30 - 4.30pm

As the nights draw in and the days grow colder, it is the time of year to use the winter as the Romantics did – to read, to learn, and to share stories in good company. Pull up a chair and enjoy a short informal talk on a topic connected to the Wordsworths – all with a hot drink and a seasonal bake close to hand, and led by our knowledgeable staff and trainees!

This week, discover more about the women who created the ‘Cottonian’ libraries with Abigail Padgett. Wordsworth and Robert Southey owned books bound in beautiful cottons – their ‘Cottonian’ libraries. Who were the members of their families that fashioned them, and was Mary Wordsworth one of them?

Cost: £7, including tea and cake.

Online booking is available up until midnight the day before the event. On the day of the event tickets can be purchased from the Wordsworth Trust Shop.
