Alerts from the Brontë Parsonage Musuem for the coming days:
Easter Holiday Activities

Talks, costumed interpretation and Hands on History sessions.
Visit the Brontë Parsonage Museum over the Easter break and look out for our special family activities!

Costumed Interpretation and Hands on History
On Tuesdays (29 March and 5 April), look out for a visit from Charlotte Brontë's great friend Ellen Nussey and get your hands on some original 19th century artefacts in a Hands-on-History session that will tell you a little bit more about life in the Parsonage.

Wednesday Workshops -Wild Wednesday! 

Wednesday 30 March - Marvellous Miniatures - Little Books!

Visit the Brontë Parsonage Museum this Easter and marvel at the miniatures on display! When the Brontës were children they made wonderful, tiny miniature books. Have a go at making your own beautiful book to take home with you, using concertina folding, old book pages and fabric.

Wednesday 6 April - Marvellous Miniatures - Pocket Brontës!

Drop into our family workshop and explore the world of the Brontës' novels by making tiny characters - all fashioned from bits and bobs such as the Brontë sisters might have had in their sewing baskets! Who will you make? Jane Eyre, the Professor, Shirley or even Charlotte herself!

Thursday Talks
On Thursdays (31 March and 7 April), come along to our short talks (approx 30 mins) which give a brief but lively introduction to Charlotte Brontë and her great work Jane Eyre. The talks take place in our Education Space and the churchyard at 11.30am and 2pm.

All activities are free with admission to the Museum.
