THE CONTEMPORARY arts programme at the Brontë Parsonage incorporates an exhibition currently running at the museum.

Heathcliff Adrift, which ends on June 8, showcases a series of narrative poems by writer Benjamin Myers, conceived while walking the moors of the West Riding.

Myers explores what happened to Heathcliff in his ‘missing’ three years in Emily Brontë’s novel Wuthering Heights.

The work runs alongside stunning landscape photographs taken by Nick Small, on the South Pennine moorland between Calderdale and Haworth.

The exhibition is free with admission to the museum.

The arts programme will also include the fifth Brontë Festival of Women’s Writing, running from September 4 to 6.

The festival will showcase contemporary women’s writing, and includes creative writing workshops, family events, and visits by both emerging and high-profile writers.

The full programme will be released in July. Sign up to the mailing list at, or call the arts officer on 01535 640188 to receive details.
