The Words by the Water Festival is the north-west of England's premier festival of words and ideas. Although the festival can’t summon Wordsworth and Coleridge to take part in their programme, there are many other literary folk coming to the Lake District in March 2018. One hundred authors, poets, academics and speakers will attract thousands of book lovers to the scenic Theatre by the Lake in Keswick on Derwentwater's shore.

The highlights include top comedian Shappi Khorsandi, Michael Rosen, Sir Vince Cable, Peter Snow, Polly Toynbee, Michael Buerk, Claire Tomalin, Ben Okri, Michael Frayn, Simon Heffer and much, much more. The festival president Melvynn Bragg will also speak at the event in conversation with his daughter Marie-Elsa Bragg.
