Thursday 14 November 2024

An online Thursday Talk from the Brontë Parsonage Museum.

An online Thursday Talk from 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, 7:30pm (GMT)
