Kala Sangam artists, in partnership with the Brontë Parsonage Museum, present a physical tapestry of movement, music and spoken word, inspired by the poetry of the Brontë sisters.

Free admission, traditional South Asian refreshments available.
The Telegraph & Argus has some more info:
A spokesman said: “The artists will weave a physical tapestry of movement, music and spoken word in response to the lyrical treasures of the Brontë sisters.
“Through the art of an expressive language of hand gestures, facial expression and physical patterns in space, we will offer a novel inter-cultural performance filled with unique aesthetics from the South Asian tradition of performing arts." (David Knights)
And tomorrow, June 19:
Keighley storyteller and musician Jim Pickles is taking part in two separate Haworth Festival events. (...)
The following day, [June 19], Jim will lead a walk from Haworth Parish Church to Top Withins – reputedly the setting for Emily Brontë’s novel Wuthering Heights – via the Bronte Waterfalls.
The free activity sets off at 10am.
Jim said: “Due to steep and uneven terrain, this walk should only be undertaken by people comfortable with such conditions.
“Dogs on leads are welcome. A refreshment break is planned on the return. I'm hoping for good weather, because there is no alternatives planned if the weather isn't good!” (David Knights in The Telegraph & Argus)
