To coincide with the Bradford International Film Festival, the Bronte Parsonage Museum is screening classics rarely shown on the big screen.
This week saw a screening of the 1939 film version of Wuthering Heights, and tonight the 1943 version of Jane Eyre gets a showing at 7.30pm. Tomorrow, also at 7.30pm, there’s a screening of 1946 film Devotion.
The Parsonage plays host to a cornucopia of spring events this Easter, including The Brontes and Animals, a quirky exhibition exploring how the Brontes’ love of animals is reflected in their works, from Rochester’s dog Pilot in Jane Eyre to Snap in Agnes Grey.
On Wednesday, April 23, at 7pm, the Parsonage stages a reading from playwright Samantha Ellis’s new novel, How To Be A Heroine: Or What I’ve Learned From Reading Too Much, as she reflects on the books that shaped her, and meets her literary heroines.
Easter workshops include Eggs! Eggs! Eggs!, transforming boiled eggs using dyeing and painting techniques, and Words To Pictures, where participants can be inspired by the museum’s pictures and objects to write their own story or poem.
The Churchyard Challenge gives visitors chance to explore mini beasts and unusual plants lurking beneath the stones, and complete our graveyard trail to find out about people who once lived in Haworth.
