Family Activities for School Holidays

The Museum is bustling during the school holidays and visitors can enjoy a range of events for all the family. Join us for short guided walks, museum trails and ‘hands on history’ sessions.

Informal drop-in talks or walks
Tuesday, Wed, Thurs, Fri at 11am and 2pm

Join us for a walk around the environs of the Parsonage and find out a little about the Brontës and their lives in Haworth. If the weather's really bad, there will be a talk in our Learning area instead.
Meet John Brown
Mon 29th, 12pm - 3pm  
Branwell’s friend John Brown is in and out of the Parsonage today looking for him. He’s supposed to be taking Branwell to Liverpool for a few days of ‘recuperation’, but he’s nowhere to be seen.  John’s in a chatty mood though, so if you come across him today, he’s sure to share a few Branwell anecdotes…

Hands on History
Tues 30th, Thurs 1st, 1pm - 4pm
Get your hands on some domestic artefacts from the Brontës time and see if you can work out some intriguing puzzles… You can even try your hand at a bit of cross stitch!

Wild Wednesday workshop – Stitching Stories
Wed 31st, 11am- 4pm

The Brontës couldn’t afford lots of paper, so they would cut out blank scraps and stitch them together to make amazing tiny versions of their favourite magazine. Sew your own miniature comics, books or magazines with artist Julia Ogden, and who knows what strange and fantastical stories you might fill them with…

Meet Ellen Nussey 
Wed 31st, 11am- 2pm
Charlotte's friend Ellen Nussey has come to visit her in the Parsonage. Ellen is in a chatty mood and will be happy to share some Brontë related anecdotes with you. 

All activities free with admission to the Museum, all materials provided.
