Announcement

We are in the process of cancelling all our events planned for April. We will reassess our events programme on a monthly rolling basis and will keep you up to date on social media and our website. We hope to run the events that were planned for April later in 2020.

If you have booked a ticket for a paid event using Quay Tickets or directly from our shop, you are entitled to a full refund. We are also inviting our audiences to consider donating all or part of their ticket payment to the Wordsworth Trust. This will help us to meet our ongoing costs, such as looking after Dove Cottage and our collection, while our income from other sources is diminishing. If you would like to help us in this way, please let us know by sending an email to fundraisingfeedback@wordsworth.org.uk.

If you’ve booked tickets directly through an organisation that we are partnering with, such as a walk, talk or children’s activity, please contact that organisation directly for information and updates.
