The Lost Words: A Conjuring Tale Told in Gold

Unfortunately, we have had to make the decision to cancel this event due to flood damage at Lyme.

Lyme was hit by serious flooding during the heavy rainfall on Wednesday 31 July, in particular affecting the garden where the performances were due to take place. While our team have been working hard to repair and restore paths, road and fences across the estate, we have had to make the very difficult decision to cancel all performances of The Lost Words:Told in Gold at Lyme. We know that this will come as disappointing news, and this is not a decision that we have taken lightly, but we are now focusing all our efforts on making Lyme a safe and special place for people to visit again.

If you have already booked tickets for The Lost Words: Told in Gold, our Central Booking Office team will be in touch shortly to arrange refunds.

What is The Lost Words: Told in Gold about?

The Lost Words: Told in Gold is a fully immersive and interactive show, and just one of several events at Lyme this year based on Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Morris’s beloved and award-winning children’s book of poems and illustrations. 

From acorn and otter, to magpie and heather - these are the words disappearing from the lives of children. Through music, dance and of course plenty of audience participation, help to work the magic that will bring them back into the modern world.

The Lost Words: Told in Gold, has been created as a fully sensory experience for children aged 4+, and is also designed to be an accessible experience for visitors with with visual impairments, SEN or autism. Spoken sections will be performed in Makaton (simplified sign language).
