A NEW exhibition will go on display at The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre this month.

The Lost Spells: Listening to a Landscape of Voices features artwork and words by artist Jackie Morris and writer Robert Macfarlane from their best-selling book, The Lost Spells.

A follow-up to the critically acclaimed literary phenomenon The Lost Words, The Lost Spells invites readers to summon back what is often lost from sight and care by reading aloud spell-poems that conjure the sights and sounds of the natural world.

Robert Macfarlane, said: "The fabulously varied landscapes of the North East are close to my heart - from coast to moor, forest to hill-top - so it's a joy to see our book The Lost Spells at the centre of this brilliantly curated and original exhibition at The Sill.

"I hope that it will help visitors young and old to listen afresh to nature's wild wonders, and to tune in to the lives, songs and voices of the creatures and plants with whom we share the world."

An engagement programme delivered by The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre will run alongside the exhibition, including creative workshops, Ranger activities, walks and talks, and a learning and education programme.

To mark the official opening of the exhibition, a celebratory opening weekend will take place on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24. People will be able to make their own wands to cast spells into nature, and there will also be a Jackdaw Challenge to see who can perform the jackdaw, an almost rap-like tongue twister from The Lost Spells.

The Lost Spells: Listening to a Landscape of Voices opens at The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre in Northumberland on Saturday, July 23 and runs until June 4, 2023.
