There’s spooky fun this half-term at the Bronte Parsonage with lots to do.

Our new exhibition, Capturing the Brontes, by leading surrealist artist Charlotte Cory, was launched in October and has been wowing visitors all month.

Charlotte has created a witty, alternative ‘Visitorian’ world, where the Brontes and their later fans are recreated as different animals.

See Tabby, the Brontes’ servant, as a cat in the kitchen and George Smith, the Brontes’ publisher, visiting as a stuffed giraffe.

There are Visitorians to look out for all over the Parsonage. See if you can spot them all! The exhibition is open every day and is free with museum entry.

We’re taking part in the Big Draw’s Draw Tomorrow on Tuesday, giving visitors the chance to be inspired by our current exhibition and create their own vision of an alternative world.

Drop in anytime from 11am to 4pm. It’s free with museum entry.

You’ll be able to come along and make your own Visitorian carte de visite on Wednesday. In the exhibition, these are Victorian visiting cards that Charlotte has combined with her own portraits of stuffed animals to give them a new lease of life. We’ll be helping you to create them for yourselves from 11am to 4pm.

Why not bring in a tiny photograph of your favourite pet to make a Visitorian pet portrait? Again, it’s free with museum entry.

Join us for an extra spooky Hallowe’en time on October 31. The Bronte Parsonage is situated right next to Haworth graveyard, and it would have been one of the first things the Brontës saw out of their windows each morning.

This Hallowe’en, we’ll be leading guided walks around the churchyard for those who are brave enough to discover some of its darkest stories and find out about the folklore surrounding this traditional festival! Join us if you dare!

There will be three walks – at 11.30am, 1pm and 2.30pm – and they’re all free with museum entry.

As well as these special events, there are always our historic rooms and permanent exhibitions about the Brontes, their work, and life in Victorian Haworth. For younger children, there’s our Bronte dolls house and dressing up.

This year, the Bronte Society is celebrating its 120th anniversary, making it the perfect time to visit if you haven’t been for a while. See you soon!
