Brontë 200 - What Emily Means to Us:

a celebration of Emily Brontë at 200

This is a past event.

a celebration of Emily Brontë at 200

We’re rounding off Emily’s birthday weekend with a celebration of her work and legacy. Join a stellar line-up of Lily Cole, Patience Agbabi and an array of other special guests as they perform readings of Emily’s work and share their responses to the words ‘what Emily means to me’. We will also be joined by The Unthanks, who will announce details of their forthcoming Emily-inspired work and give a short performance from their repertoire.

This tribute to the astonishing creative mind behind Wuthering Heights and some of the most evocative and moving poetry in literature, set against the stunning landscape that so inspired her, promises to be an evening to remember. Book early to avoid disappointment!

Tickets £15/£12 concessions and Brontë Society members (£5 for 16-25 year olds). 

SOLD OUT- Tickets are now completely sold out for this event.

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.
