The Lost Words Festival
Northumberland National Park and The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre are delighted to announce The Lost Words Festival will be taking place from January 25th to April 20th 2020.
The Lost Words is a book of spells that seek to conjure back the near-lost magic and unique, special qualities of the nature that surrounds us here in the UK, exploring much of the nature which we are lucky to be able to discover within Northumberland National Park. It is a literary masterpiece which transcends age barriers, inspiring children and moving adults with its wide appeal.
The Lost Words Festival includes The Lost Words Exhibition featuring 20 acrostic spell-poems written by Robert Macfarlane and 50 beautiful watercolour originals by Jackie Morris which were used to create the book.
The Lost Words exhibition is curated by Compton Verney, with Hamish Hamilton and Penguin Books.
