Easter activities at the Brontë Parsonage Museum:
Inspired by the Brontës
Exhibition of new poems by Ilkley and Calderdale Young Writers
29/03/2013 - 07/05/2013

In February 2013, sixteen writers from Ilkley Young Writers and Calderdale Young Writers spent a week at the Ted Hughes Arvon Centre at Lumb Bank as part of a collaborative project between Arvon and the Brontë Society. The young writers visited Haworth Parsonage and responded to items in the collection, and the resulting work is displayed as a series of text installations at the Brontë Parsonage Museum, alongside the objects that inspired them.
Exhibition is free with admission to the Museum.
