Yorkshire Post recommends '10 beautiful Christmas walks around Yorkshire this festive season', including
4. Brontë Waterfall, Haworth
The pretty village of Haworth will be beautifully decorated this Christmas, with plenty of trees and twinkly lights. Footpaths from the village will take you on a three mile route along the Brontë Waterfall, while a further 1.25 miles will see you arrive at Top Withens, the ruined farmhouse said to be the inspiration for Wuthering Heights.

Limelight (Australia) interviews one of Shake & Stir theatre company artistic directors, Nick Skubij.
shake & stir does love a good adaptation. Why are you attracted to the classics you’ve brought to the stage?
There’s something incredibly exciting in the challenge of taking something that is so well known and so loved and finding new ways to present it for modern-day audiences. The titles we choose to adapt tend to have quite passionate fans so there is always a high expectation from our audience to do the source material justice but to put our own spin on it. We are drawn to stories that lend themselves to exciting design choices and that have a clear “world” for us to bring to visceral life on stage. We’ve had all the elements feature in our productions – from an entire set catching on fire in Jane Eyre (deliberately) to a full-stage rain deluge in Wuthering Heights to a blizzard snow storm in A Christmas Carol. What’s next…? (Deborah Jones)

"Over the years, I've gathered up enough books to say that I have a little library in my room. To read more during recent months, I joined Book of the Month and have novels just all over the place. I'm hoping to find some more space for all these titles and spotted these absolutely adorable bookends shaped like books — including copies of "Alice in Wonderland" and "Jane Eyre." Any literary lover would love them." — Pardilla
