The Brontë Parsonage is home to one of the world’s most famous museums, and houses the world’s biggest collection of Brontë manuscripts, drawings, artefacts and other memorabilia, from locks of their hair, to the stockings they darned. Now Collections Manager and Brontë scholar Ann Dinsdale, who’s worked at the Museum for over 20 years, talks about the Museum’s astonishing recent acquisitions – including the famous dining table at which they wrote their novels – and offers a fascinating personal glimpse of life at the Museum from the other side of the cordon.
Ann’s talk is here at Ponden Hall on Sunday April 19 at 2pm, and will be followed by a luxurious Ponden cream tea, complete with various kinds of sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, teatime cakes – and, of course, many pots of the statutory Yorkshire Tea! Afterwards visitors are also welcome to join in a tour of Ponden Hall.This special event will take place on Sunday 19 April at 2pm. Tickets cost £20 and need to be booked in advance.
