For three days, Moorcroft will be based in the picturesque Grasmere Village Hall, where you can enjoy a morning talk by Moorcroft Director of Art, Elise Adams, as she unveils The William Wordsworth Collection. The new collection will be available to purchase along with a wide selection of designs from the newly-launched Moorcroft 2020 Catalogue and other such ceramic treasures. You will also be able to meet a Moorcroft artist, who will be demonstrating the heritage craft skills of tubelining and painting behind each piece of Moorcroft pottery. The daytime events at Grasmere Village Hall will be free of charge, but for those looking for an extra special experience, The Wordsworth Hotel and Spa will be our destination for a three-course meal on Friday evening, only 10 minutes’ walk from the Village Hall itself. Guests of the hotel will find the incredible Wordsworth Daffodil Garden right on their doorstep, which in turn is next door to St Oswald’s Church, the resting place of Wordsworth and his family members. At the entrance of the churchyard, Grasmere’s famous gingerbread shop can be found. Spicy-sweet and chewy, Grasmere gingerbread was invented in 1854 by Victorian creator cook Sarah Nelson who sold it to villagers and visitors from a table top on a tree stump outside her front door. Whilst in the area, you can also visit the National Trust property of Allan Bank- a country house and grounds overlooking Grasmere Lake and fells. Be sure to pencil this weekend in your diaries as a not-to-be-missed experience.
