An alert for today, October 15, at the Brontë Parsonage Museum:
The Brontë Lounge with Simon Armitage
The Rise and Fall of Branwell Brontë
Thursday 15 October 2020, 19:30 h

We are thrilled to welcome Simon Armitage to the Brontë Lounge.
Simon was the Brontë Parsonage Museum’s Creative Partner in 2017, the bicentenary year of Branwell Brontë.  During his residency, Simon curated an exhibition, Mansions in the Sky, and wrote ten poems in response to Branwell’s belongings in the Museum collection.
In this live event, Simon will read from the Mansions in the Sky series of poems and talk to host Helen Meller about how his understanding of the notorious Brontë brother developed and changed as he took a closer look at his life and influences.
