To celebrate Charlotte Brontë’s bicentenary in Bronte Lancashire. Join Sue Newby from the Brontë Parsonage Museum to bring Jane Eyre off the page in Wycoller, Lancashire. With a really simple script and costumes we’ll re-create the early part of Jane’s story. Together we’ll dramatise her time with the awful Reed family and then her banishment to the most horrible school in literature – Lowood. Everyone gets to join in this FREE workshop. It’s suitable for children aged 8 years and above and all families are welcome - no drama skills required! (...)
After the workshop, enjoy visiting the atmospheric village which inspired the Brontës including the ruined hall which is the real Ferndean Manor in Jane Eyre.
