A couple of alerts for today, May 27, at the Brontë Parsonage Museum:
Birds of Prey with SMJ Falconry
Birds of prey displays and handling
May 27th 2018 10:00am - 04:00pm

Inspired by our Wings of Desire exhibition, visit the Parsonage to witness some of the birds of prey that feature in Kate Whiteford’s film, including the tiny merlin hawk similar to Emily’s Nero. Visitors will be able to witness flying displays with a variety of incredible birds, from the amazing speed of peregrine falcons, to the fantastic ability of a red kite. In between displays, visitors will be able to handle (under expert supervision) the birds and talk with SMJ Falconry’s knowledgeable team.

First flying display at 12.30pm
Second flying display at 3.00pm


Museums at Night: Hands on History
Museum open until 8pm
May 17th 2018 05:30pm - 08:00pm

We have some intriguing domestic objects in our collection, and this evening our museum assistants will be getting ‘hands on’ in our historic rooms, in order to allow you a closer look and the opportunity to find out exactly what some of the objects were used for, and how we care for them now. Join us if you’d like to discover more about the day-to-day domestic life of the Brontës.
Free with entry to the Museum. After 5.30pm, admission is free to visitors providing proof of residence in the BD22, BD21 and BD20 postcode areas or Thornton. Last admission 7.30pm.
