May half-term activities at the Museum
Fun for all the family
Come and join us during the half-term holiday and enhance your visit by participating in one of our activities.
Tuesday 26, Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 May: 2pm Talk:
Brontës for Beginners: a short introduction to the Brontë sisters and three of their great novels, 'Wuthering Heights', 'Jane Eyre' and 'The Tenant of Wildfell Hall'. The talks will take place in the churchyard (or inside the Museum if the weather is a bit wet and wuthering.)
Wednesday 27 May 11am - 3.30pm: Art workshop
Create a Brontë bird with artist Julia Ogden. A drop-in art workshop based on the birds that inhabit Haworth and the moors, using mono-printing with textured materials. A great opportunity to explore colour and texture and create a beautiful piece of art to take home with you.
Thursday 28 May 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm:
Storytelling with Christine McMahonListen to Christine's tales of folk and fairies. Who knows, you might be inspired to go and write your own - just like the Brontës did!
All activities are free with admission to the Museum.
