More Information on The Brontë Season (2016)

The Brontës immediately conjure images of wild Yorkshire moors and the cobbled streets of Haworth. On the 200 year anniversary of Charlotte Brontë’s birth, this season celebrates and reimagines the extraordinary stories they wrote, their cultural legacy and their remarkable, yet tragic lives.

The Brontë season is presented in partnership with the Brontë Parsonage Museum.
