Our 4th Birthday

Today we celebrate our fourth birthday and we thought it would be nice to look back over some of our favourite moments. We have welcomed millions of visitors, hosted thousands of events, exhibitions, talks, performances and workshops and had the pleasure of working with writers, artists, film makers and other cultural venues and libraries from across the UK and internationally.

The past seven months have been difficult for us all and we continue to work towards the successful and safe reopening of our exhibitions and events programme. We’d like to thank everyone who has been involved in making The Word a success and in the meantime please keep an eye out for our online programming.

What’s been your favourite thing or event we’ve had here at The Word?
