An alert from the Brontë Parsonage Museum for today, July 4:
Brontë 200: Branwell's Life in Haworth
Monthly drop-in Tuesday Talk
July 04th 2017 11:30am - 02:00pm

Branwell Brontë’s reputation as the black sheep of the family is well established. He was the waster of opportunities, the loser of jobs, and the one who spent a lot more time in the Black Bull than was necessary – and yet his fellow Haworth villagers may have seen him rather differently. He was well liked and known to have been far more sociable than any of his sisters; described by a contemporary as ‘an extraordinarily talented young man with a hearty passion for life’. Join us for this free talk to learn more.
Free with admission to the Museum.
And another one at the Bradford Literature Festival:
Beehive Poets
4th July 2017 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Bradford’s own Beehive Poets launch their poetry pamphlet, Bee 6, a collaboration with Côte Poets, the South of France-based arts magazine and writing group. This special reading of the collection will reflect local interest such as the Brontës, but will also have an international flavour; the Brontës were, after all, europhiles.
