The Poetry Bus
To hail the reopening of Dove Cottage, William Wordsworth’s home during his ‘golden decade’ (1799–1808), and as part of a yearlong celebration of the poet’s 250th birthday Wordsworth Grasmere, Stagecoach and Aerial bring poetry to the people via the 555 and 599.
Bus travellers between Windermere and Keswick may be a little surprised when poets Kim Moore and Clare Shaw climb aboard the 555 and 599 buses and perform their own work as well as sharing some of Wordsworth’s words with passengers as they journey through the landscape that inspired some of Wordsworth’s greatest poetry – and continues to inspire poets today!
The poets will be performing on the following services:
No need to book; normal route fares apply.
