We’ll soon be taking a much-needed holiday, but not before we’ve returned to Scarborough for a special poetry-and-prose reading honouring Anne, the “forgotten” Brontë sister. We’ll be at Wardle & Jones bookshop on Bar Street from 2pm – 3pm this coming Saturday 5th September!
After this, on Tuesday 22nd September, we’re over at York Explore Library at 6pm, discussing the Brontës’ connection with the town and the ill-fated employment taken up by Anne and Branwell in nearby Little Ouseburn, which was to mark the beginning of the end for the family. Expect poignancy and scandal in equal measure!
We’re heading to Ponden Hall in Haworth on Thursday 24th at 6pm, to mark the 167th anniversary of Branwell’s death. Take a tour around the astonishing ancient family home, see the bedrooms, views and library that inspired the young Brontës and tuck in to some gorgeous traditional fare. Call 01535 648608 for further details.
Back to Scarborough for the 1st October, where we’ll be at the Library at 6pm in anticipation of National Poetry Day! Hear the work of a family that inspired and intrigued generations of future writers and artists.
Finally, we’ll be back to Ponden in Haworth for Halloween With The Brontës, where you can hear chilling excerpts from the family’s writings as well as ghastly tales from local folklore and enjoy a lovely autumnal meal. This event is available via pre-booking only. Call 01535 648608 to reserve your place.
All this, AND our show, The Dissolution of Percy, opens this November!
