Thursday 14 November 2024

A Thursday Talk at the Brontë Parsonage Museum

November 14th 2024 02:00pm - 03:00pm

A Thursday Talk at the Brontë Parsonage Museum

The Reverend Patrick Brontë was incredibly proud of all his children. He's known for being the father of the Brontës, but Patrick’s own story is in itself fascinating and inspiring. This talk will explore his incredible journey which begins in County Down, Ireland. Patrick’s life and the events he lived through would continually influence both his community, his children, and their work. 
The talk will be delivered by Kate Walker, a Visitor Experience Assistant at the Brontë Parsonage. Kate grew up in Thornton and enjoys sharing the Brontës' story and work with visitors from all over the world. 
Date: Thursday 14 November, 2pm
Venue: Brontë Event Space at the Old School Room
Free with entry to the Museum and for residents in BD20, BD21, and BD22. No need to book.

Thursday Talks are delivered by our knowledgeable Museum staff and volunteers.  
This event will take place at the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth. Can't make it in person? No problem! We'll be running an online version of this talk the same day. Book for the online version of this event here.
