A reminder for the readers on the Brontë ground zero. Tomorrow is Go Local Day and the Brontë Parsonage Museum can be visited for free:
Do you own old photographs of the Parsonage or Haworth? Is there a picture of you as a child standing on the front steps? Or playing in the meadow? Walking up Main Street? Or playing hide-and-seek in the churchyard? If so, we’d like to you bring them in and show us – as you visit the Museum for free! – on Sunday April 14, ‘Go Local Day’.

‘Go Local’ Day is when you can visit the Brontë Parsonage Museum and many other local attractions free if you live in postal areas BD20, BD21 or BD22. To celebrate the day and our new exhibition, ‘Heaven is a Home’, which focuses on all the people who lived at the Parsonage as well as the Brontës, we’re collecting local people’s pictures, and would love to copy them to add to our exhibition either in the Museum, or online.

So for free entry to the Museum on April 14, just bring a utility bill or driving license showing you live locally – and if you have pictures, too, we’d love to copy them to add to our collection. Our doors open at 10am, and last entry is at 5pm before we close at 5.30pm.
Brontë Society Director, Ann Sumner, will be at the Museum on Sunday morning to collect photographs and talk to visitors about their Parsonage memories.
To enjoy free entry to the Museum on Sunday, simply bring a utility bill or driving licence showing your local postcode.
The Museum opens at 10am and last admission is at 5pm. The Museum closes at 5.30pm.
