William Wordsworth’s wild childhood is the inspiration for a season of #wildtime in the Lake District. William spent his days swimming in the Derwent, reading on its banks, chasing butterflies, hunting for birds’ nests and roaming nearby lanes and fields. His love of nature fed his imagination and grew up to be one of the world’s favourite poets.
Dig the City
We'll be over at Dig the City in Manchester from 31 July - 6 August. Come along and see us in St Ann's Square, where we'll be mud pie making, barefoot walking and creating wild art all week.
Take a break. Just here...
