BRONTË Treasures are to go on display once a month in Haworth at the place where the famous family lived.

The Brontë Parsonage Museum is running Brontë Treasures events on the last Friday of every month at 2pm.

Visitors will get a special chance to see items from the world’s largest collection of Brontë artefacts, manuscript and personal belongings.

People will be allowed beyond the security cord into the Parsonage Library for a close-up viewing of items not normally on display.

A museum spokesman said: “During these hour-long sessions, a member of the curatorial team will share facts and stories about a number of carefully-selected objects, offering a specialist insight into the lives of work of this inspirational family."

The cost of each event is £85, and places are limited to 12 people. Visit or call 01535 640192 for further information and to book tickets.

The dates of Brontë Treasures events will coincide with the monthly Parsonage Unwrapped events, where at 7.30pm specialists will give talks about various aspects of the Brontës’ lives and works.

At the first Parsonage Unwrapped event, on February 24, principal curator Ann Dinsdale will talk about the varied screen adaptations of the Brontës’ novels and family’s own story.
