REGULAR events from Branwell and Charlotte’s bicentenaries will return to the Brontë Parsonage Museum throughout 2018, this time with an Emily theme.

There will be 2pm talks on the first Tuesday of each month, Brontë Treasures on the last Friday of each month2pm, and Parsonage Unwrapped events on regular Friday evenings.

Emily At Home is the title of the first talk on February 6, exploring the domestic side of Emily and her writing.

A spokesman said: “As someone who revelled in the wild extremes of nature, freedom and the outdoors, Emily also seemed to embrace the quieter pleasures of the everyday, of the familiar routine of life with her family at the Parsonage.”

Future talks include the poetry of Emily Brontë (March 6), Heathcliff (April 3), the origins of Wuthering Heights (May 1), and Emily Brontë and nature (June 5).

Brontë Treasures will begin in February 23 at 2pm, focusing as usual on the world’s largest collection of Brontë artefacts, manuscripts and personal belongings.

The spokesman said: “Brontë Treasures offers a unique opportunity to go beyond the security cord into the Parsonage Library for a close-up viewing of some of the items not on display.

“During the special two hour-long sessions, a member of our curatorial team will share facts and stories about a number of carefully-selected objects.

“They will offer a specialist insight into the lives and work of this inspirational family. Fascinating and moving in equal measure, Bronte Treasures is a not-to-be-missed experience.”

Parsonage Unwrapped will begin at February 23 at 7.30pm with Writing The Brontës.

The spokesman said. “Since the publication of Elizabeth Gaskell’s Life of Charlotte Brontë in 1857, countless biographers have researched, detailed and occasionally embellished the lives of the Brontë family.

“Join principal curator Ann Dinsdale for an evening considering Gaskell, Leyland, Du Maurier, Gerin and Barker and how their perspectives have shipped understanding of Haworth’s most famous family.”
