Fri 21 Apr The Brontë Society Spring Walk


To celebrate Charlotte’s birthday, the Brontë Society Spring Walk this year will follow the route from the Brontë birthplace at Thornton to Haworth, just as the Brontë family themselves would have when they moved here in 1820.

This is in partnership with Bradford Fair Trade Zone as part of the International Festival of Fair Trade Walks, which has a theme for 2017 of local literary connections.

On arrival at Haworth there will be tea and cake in the Old School Room, and a talk on Patrick and his campaigns for social justice.

In the Museum itself, there will be a range of informal talks about Charlotte throughout the day, and a writing workshop with local author Glynis Charlton exploring the richness of the theme of journeys.

Free to all. Victorian dress welcome! 50% discount on Museum entry for Fair Trade walkers.
