CLOSURE of the Brontë Parsonage Museum to the public throughout January is not stopping the Haworth attraction holding events.

Staff will take turns to head out into the Parsonage garden at noon each day to share their knowledge of the famous family.

The talks, entitled An Introduction To The Brontës, will each last 15 minutes, are free, and do not need to be booked in advance. People should assemble outside the museum admissions area.

Parsonage Wrapped is a special event on Saturday, January 6 which will take a small group of people behind the scenes at the museum.

There will be two sessions, at 11am and 2pm, to follow on from a similar sell-out event in January last year.

A member of the curatorial team will take people through the delicate and painstaking process of ‘putting the house to bed’, carrying out vital conservation and cleaning work, and updating displays and activities.

The nearby West Lane Baptist Centre will host a screening of the 1939 version of Wuthering Heights on Monday, January 8 at 1pm.

Hollywood glamour is promised in a film starring Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon that aims to whet people’s appetites for a new exhibition at the Parsonage Museum to mark the bicentenary of Emily Brontë’s birth.

A member of the museum team will introduce the film and stay for a chat over a cup of coffee. Admission is free and advance booking is not required.
