It's 205 years since the birth of Charlotte Brontë in Thornton. We have a couple of celebratory plans to suggest.

First of all, those of you near Haworth do remember that while the Brontë Parsonage is sadly still closed, the shop is now open and welcoming buyers. So do pop by if you're in the area. If you're elsewhere in the world do remember that the online shop is open 24/7. It's a nice way of doing a little something for the Brontë Parsonage Museum during this difficult time.

And now for the second plan, accessible wherever you are in the world too.
Flock Theatre's Jane Eyre, produced as a Zoom film and released in November 2020, is available for free streaming on YouTube. This new adaptation by Julie Butters, which supplements live-action performances with shadow puppetry, has garnered more than 3,000 views since its release.
Whatever you do, we hope you find a little moment to think of Charlotte on her birthday.
