A day of storytelling with Sophia Hatfield...

Are you sitting comfortably...?

Join Storyteller-in-Residence Sophia Hatfield on Thursday 15 and Saturday 24 August as she performs live stories and songs inspired by the servants who lived and worked in the Parsonage.
Using a basket of everyday objects curated by designer Rachel Shore, Sophia will reveal the fabulous folk tales behind them. From cheeky boggarts to fierce witches and tiny toy soldiers, each original story is inspired by Yorkshire folklore, local history, and the incredible creative worlds crafted by the Brontë children.

These days of storytelling and music accompany our How to Build a Storyteller installation and wider programme of events based on our Brontës' Web of Childhood exhibition.
Thursday 15 August, 11am - 4pm
Saturday 24 August, 11am - 4pm

Tickets: Free with entry to the Museum! You don’t need to book, simply visit the Servant’s Room on your way around to meet Sophia and hear a fabulous folk tale.

Absolutely everyone is welcome during Sophia’s storytelling sessions. Please feel free to stand or sit to hear a story, ask a member of staff if you need any support, and don’t worry if you arrive halfway through – you can always stay for the next one if you want to!

The stories feature live music performed on the accordion and violin, with songs and lots of silly characters, all brought to life through Sophia’s inventive storytelling style.
