The theme of this year's annual Workhouse Poetry Festival is 'Care and Creativity.' It will include a flavour of the garden and natural world with opportunities to hear poetry as spoken word and take part in special sensorium activities.
Visitors can follow a poetry trail throughout the house and garden as well as take part in workshops led by writers and lecturers from Loughborough University. The festival closes with an open mic evening on Sunday 22 September.
This event is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue. This excludes the open mic event which will be ticketed. Full details will be provided on The Workhouse website soon.
