Words by the Water

A festival of words and ideas

9-18 March 2019

From food festivals to outdoor events

Allerdale’s festival and events calendar mirrors the vibrant cultural life of our warm-hearted area.

Cockermouth is taken over by the area’s biggest food festival, Taste Cumbria Cockermouth
for a weekend in September and December. Keswick naturally hosts the major outdoor
festival, Keswick Mountain Festival and Words by the Water, while Silloth hosts a fabulous annual Music and Beer Festival on the Green in town.
