‘St. John in the Wilderness’ & the Brontës in York, book launch with author Alan TitteringtonFriday 25 November 2016
Alan Titterington will be signing copies of his book ‘St John in the Wilderness’ at Pyramid Gallery on Friday 25 November between 6pm and 8.30pm

The book focuses on to his ancestor’s time spent in York, mostly in debtors prison, after moving his family to the building that s now Pyramid Gallery, 43 Stonegate
Did you know that Anne and Charlotte Brontë  visited York in 1848 and came to 43 Stonegate to meet John and Mary Titterington who were residing 43 Stonegate?
We found this out a few years ago when Alan came and visited Pyramid Gallery to research his story. His Great Great Grandfather actually lived in our building for a short while and having been a very close friend to Branwell Brontë,  he knew the Brontë sisters well.
