Emily's Birthday Celebration
All aboard for Emily's birthday
August 02nd 2015 11:30am - 04:40pm
TICKETS ONLY AVAILABLE ONLINE UNTIL 4.30pm ON FRIDAY 31 JULY.
AFTER THIS TIME, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND, PLEASE COME ALONG TO KEIGHLEY STATION BEFORE 11.30 ON SUNDAY TO PAY ON THE DAY.
Emily Bronte's birthday falls on 30 July and we will be celebrating the 197th anniversary of her birth with a special celebration on Sunday 2 August. We hope you will join us, but as places are strictly limited to 30, be sure to book soon!
Our special guests will board the 1145 steam train from Keighley and hear a talk by railway historian David Pearson. On arriving in Haworth at 1205, visitors will then transfer to a vintage bus and travel up to West Lane Baptist Church - just across the road from the Brontë Parsonage Museum.
There will then be the opportunity to wander around Haworth and have some lunch in one of the many cafes or pubs before gathering at the Museum at 1315. You will have the chance to explore the Museum - Emily's former home - and hear a talk on Emily Brontë as well as partake in a guided walk up onto Penistone Hill for a view of the wild landscape which so inspired 'Wuthering Heights'. The afternoon will conclude with tea and homemade cake.
At 1555, the vintage bus will take our celebration guests back over the moors to Oxenhope in time to board the 1615 train back to Keighley. Estimated arrival in Keighley is 1640.
This is sure to be a very special day so make sure you book without delay!
