This is a past event.

Guest Curator Melanie Abrahams presents 'Emily Speaks'.

Join us on Emily’s birthday to hear personal responses to Emily Brontë’s life, poetry and prose. Bidisha, Hannah Lowe and Melanie Abrahams, whose work spans journalism, poetry and oratory, and who share a common interest in social mobilisation through literature, explore Emily’s independence and self-determination in relation to the broader racial, cultural and social histories of the mid-nineteenth century.

Tickets £5/£3 concessions and Brontë Society members (£2 for 16-25 year olds). 

SOLD OUT- Tickets are now sold out for this event. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door.

All events over the birthday weekend will take place in a specially constructed marquee in Parson's Field behind the Brontë Parsonage Museum, except for the premier of Lily Cole's new film, Balls, which will take place at the West Lane Baptist Centre. Parson's Field can be accessed by a gate to the right hand side of the Brontë Parsonage Shop, towards the footpath to the moors.
