Robert Macfarlane & Jackie Morris
The Lost Words

Join award-winning writer and festival patron Robert Macfarlane and acclaimed artist Jackie Morris in a celebration of nature and language. The Lost Words: A Spell Book is a praise-song, in word and image, to the living world around us – from acorns to wrens – and a magical attempt to close the growing gap between childhood and nature. This enchanting book “for children aged 1 to 100” has become a phenomenon since its publication in October, and is already in use in hundreds of schools and nurseries across the country.  Come and hear summoning spells spoken, and see otters and kingfishers drawn live on stage.
