You might be in for a bit of a surprise, because thatâ€™s the day that Keatâ€™s House holds itâ€™s teddy bearâ€™s picnic!
Keatâ€™s House Garden, not 15 minutes from our very own Belsize Park branch, is playing host to local to toddlers and their teddy bears.Â Since it occupied the great man himself, the house is often used as a venue for community events.
The house was originally built as a semi detached in 1815. Three years later there, Keats wrote â€˜Ode to a Nightingaleâ€™, and fell in love with Fanny Brawne, the girl next door. It was from this house that he travelled to Rome, where he died of tuberculosis aged just 25.
In this beautiful and historic setting the website invites you to enjoy â€˜all your favourite songs, poems and stories and donâ€™t forget to bring your favourite teddy bear!â€™ The event kicks off from 3 â€“ 3.45pm today, but if youâ€™re reading this too late, donâ€™t worry; the event continues for the rest of the summer.Â To see datesÂ click here.
