Release your inner Wordsworth with Words by the Water Festival

Keswick, Cumbria

Don’t miss this exciting literature event, a festival of words and ideas, set by the lake surrounded by the Lake District fells.

This literary event takes place at the Theatre by the Lake, sited right on the edge of Derwentwater. It is a striking venue for a ten-day programme of literary events where writers and readers get together to share the pleasure of books, words and ideas at a array of unique events.

Visitors can also enjoy talks, lectures, discussions, workshops, book launches and special exhibitions, a true slice of literary heaven. 2019's festival lineup (8-17 March) features a number of noted authors including Prue Leith, Alan Johnson and Anna Pasternak, with tickets for every event available online now.
