'In 1799 William Wordsworth arrived in Grasmere aged 29, largely unknown and writing innovative poetry in a new style. Whilst living at Dove Cottage with his family, Wordsworth wrote many of his greatest poems and his sister Dorothy kept her Grasmere journal ... From book launches to writing groups to poetry nights, there’s always something going on at Wordsworth Grasmere. This year many of our events take place online, so you can join in from own home.'
