BRONTË SOCIETY SUMMER FESTIVAL WEEKEND

The Brontë Parsonage Museum opened to the public for the first time on 4 August 1928, and the stream of pilgrims who had been visiting Haworth for the previous seventy-five years could now look around the very rooms in which the Brontë family had lived, written and worked. Ann Dinsdale, Principal Curator at the Museum, and Jane Sellars, Curator of Cultural Services at Harrogate Borough Council and a former Director of the Brontë Society, discuss Haworth in the 1920s and the Museum’s journey through the last ninety years.
