Final Call: Taster Day for Young Composers in South Lakeland

Encountering Wordsworth

Taster Day for Young Composers: Sunday 3 November – Dove Cottage, Grasmere

2020 is the 250th anniversary of the birth of  Wordsworth, one of Britain’s most influential Romantic poets who wrote many of his famous poems at Dove Cottage in Grasmere. Building on the success of three previous Young Composer projects we’re marking this date with an exciting collaboration in South Lakeland.

Are you interested in taking part? See what it’s all about at our Taster Day.

Encountering Wordsworth is offering young people from South Lakes the opportunity to work with members of the Manchester Camerata, a Sound Artist and Poet and explore what inspired Wordsworth to write his poems and to create their own collaborative composition for performance.


Thanks to Arts Council England Project Grants, there is no cost to take part.
