Wordsworth’s 250th Birthday Service

This service, led by Dove Cottage's Head Guide, celebrates Wordsworth’s poetry about nature, people and home. The venue is Kendal Unitarian Chapel in the Lake District – the area where Wordsworth lived for most of his life and wrote his greatest poetry. There will be readings from his poetry and reflection on what his words might mean for us today. What makes this event extra special is that Wordsworth occasionally attended this chapel. Ideas of liberty and equality influenced both the young Wordsworth and the early Unitarians who founded the chapel in 1720.
