  • Gardens, Mosses and Manuscripts: All-Day Writing Workshop
    Karen Lloyd (writer in residence with Lancaster University's Future Places Centre) will lead this early summer creative writing workshop, taking initial inspiration from leading women writers on the natural world, including Dorothy Wordsworth, Karen McCarthy Woolf, Robin Wall Kimmerer and Kathleen Jamie. As our lives become increasingly urbanised, many of us have lost knowledge of the wildflowers that play key roles in our ecosystems, a phenomenon which has been called plant blindness. Part of this inspiring day will therefore provide an opportunity to look closely at plants, pollinators, lichens, mosses and related manuscripts in the Wordsworth Trust's collection. A member of the garden team will meet participants to explore the role of plants in Dove Cottage Garden-Orchard, and there will be time for quiet writing in both gardens and woodlands. The group will also have the opportunity to examine Sarah Hutchinson and Emmeline Fisher's moss book, dating from 1841.

  • Elizabeth: A Portrait in Part(s) plus Recorded QandA
    Cinema | (PG) | 89 minutes | 11th June 16:30 Elizabeth: A Portrait in Parts is a unique and inventive feature documentary about the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Directed by the late, great and much celebrated Roger Michell (Notting Hill, The Duke) and produced by prolific British producer Kevin Loader (Nowhere Boy, The Lady in the Van), Elizabeth: A Portrait in Parts is a nostalgic, uplifting and fresh modern chronicle of the extraordinary 70-year reign of Her Majesty the Queen, the longest-lived, longest-reigning British monarch and longest-serving female head of state in history.

  • Wake Up Punk
    Cinema | (15) | 102 minutes | 11th June 8:30pm This film is part of our 2 for £10 ticket deal! Select 2 standard tickets at checkout and use the code MUSICFEST22 to redeem the offer. You can choose tickets for 2 different films, or buy 2 tickets for the same feature. This offer applies to: Wake Up Punk, Ennio: The Maestro, and Casablanca Beats. Joe Corr, son of punk visionaries Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren, burnt an estimated £5M worth of punk memorabilia in protest against the commodification of punk. Wake Up Punk takes this incendiary act and the questions it raises to explore the lifespan and true worth of punk the 20th century's most volatile movement. With a fusion of documentary and magical realism, the film captures intimate moments between Westwood and her two sons Ben and Joe as they candidly discuss their relationships with McLaren and stories from the punk era.
