BRONTË Treasures by Candlelight is the title of a special session at the Brontë Parsonage Museum.

A member of the curatorial team will spend an hour sharing facts and stories about a number of carefully-selected objects.

The curator will offer a specialist insight into the lives and work of the inspirational Brontë family.

Visitors to the Haworth museum will also be able to experience the historic rooms at the Parsonage by candlelight.

A spokesman said: “Fascinating and moving in equal measure, this Brontë Treasures by Candlelight is a not-to-be-missed experience.”

Places are limited to 12 for the event on Friday December 8 from 7.30pm. Tickets cost £85, including a glass of wine.

There will be a wreath making workshop at the museum on Saturday and Sunday, December 16 and 17, at 2pm, when visitors can make a festive wreath for their front door inspired by the traditional Christmas decorations at the museum.

All materials will be provided, and the workshop includes mince pies and mulled wine to get participants in the festive mood.

Tickets cost £30, including festive refreshments and admission to the museum.

December is the last month when people can visit the museum to see this year’s two flagship exhibitions.

To Walk Invisible: From Parsonage To Production features costumes from Sally Wainwright’s acclaimed Brontë drama, which was shown on the BBC last Christmas.

Designer Tom Pye worked closely with experts and academics to create costumes authentic to the period and which evoked the separate personalities of each member of the Brontë family.

Also on display are props made especially for the drama and a selection of stills from photographer Michael Prince giving an insight into the filmmaking process.

The other exhibition, Mansions in the Sky, is leading poet Simon Armitage’s exploration of the mind and world of the notorious Branwell Brontë.
