 The Oxford Mail talks about one the performances of the This is My Theatre's Jane Eyre tour:

The socially-distanced show will run at The Great Hall in Cholsey, near Wallingford on Saturday August 14 at 8pm.
Sussex based theatre company, 'This is My Theatre' is one of the first theatre companies to get back on the road and show their brand new adaptation of Jane Eyre.
The show will be packed with action and romance as well as live music and song and will bring some much needed joy this summer. (...)
The production will be performed by a small cast with Madeline Hatt playing Jane Eyre, Ethan Taylor playing Edward Rochester, Lilly Smith playing Helen Jane's childhood friend and Mrs Fairfax and Simon Stallard will play Mr Brocklehurst and St John. (Rebecca Whittaker)
The author of this article on Harper's Bazaar (Italy) is overoptimistic when she says:
I grandi romanzi non sono mai romanzi di genere. Nessuno si sognerebbe di definire Jane Eyre o Anna Karenina romanzi d’amore, o comunque non solo.  (Alessia Vitale) (Translation)

If only. Several years of Brontëblogging hace certainly show us that this is not the case. 

The Telegraph & Argus lists free things to do in Bradford this summer like
Visit Haworth
If you’re a literature fan, Haworth is the place to visit. The village was home to the famous Brontë sisters, who spent their entire lives in this quaint village. Much of the inspiration for their novels were drawn from the charming town and the surrounding moors. Visit the Brontë Memorial Chapel to pay respects to the sisters or take a trip on the heritage steam railway, which still runs today for tourists. (Chelsie Sewell)
Attitude reviews Holly Stars Comedy Club? at the Garrick Theatre:
The larger-than-life Kate Butch had no problem captivating the socially-distanced crowd, though, with her hilarious twist on ‘Wuthering Heights’ and Flo & Joan (aka sisters Nicola and Rosie Dempsey) brought the house down with their set of deadpan songs. (Simon Button
LoveReading interviews the author Aliya Ali Afbal:
Liz Robinson: Tell us about the first book that really caught your imagination and you fell in love with.
It has to be Jane Eyre, which I read when I was 12. It still remains my favourite book. Now that I think about it, Jane Eyre has the same sort of mixture that I love in my novels: mystery, suspense, relationships, and most of all, a woman discovering who she is and living authentically. I was so inspired by Jane’s courage and resilience and was so interested in her journey as she finds her power. It was such a page turner but was a comforting and inspirational book to read at 12 and is the same today, in my 50s!

Financiero (México) publishes an article (well, sort of) about 'the curious story' of the Brontë sisters. It's full of great wtf moments, like this one:

Patrick encontró en Howthorn, un poblado pequeño y apartado, una posición modesta y una casa sencilla donde fundó su familia. Meses después del nacimiento de Anne, su madre muere de cáncer. Para poder criar a sus seis hijos, que iban del año de edad a los siete, Patrick hizo venir a Elizabeth Branwell, hermana solterona de su difunta mujer, quien se instaló con la familia. (Translation)
