AWARD-WINNING author Tracy Chevalier has visited the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth.

The novelist, whose novels include Girl With A Pearl Earring, discussed plans for the forthcoming Brontë bicentenary celebrations.

The celebrations will start in 2016, the 200th anniversary of Charlotte Brontë’s birth, and will run until 2020, to mark the births of Emily and Anne.

The museum, which is due to reopen on Sunday after its winter break, said further details of the celebration would be unveiled later in 2015.
