History Wardrobe: Gothic for Girls

There are no future dates


This is a past event.


History Wardrobe presents an evening  of enlightenment in all things gothic. This event will take you back to the 18th century to explore the origins of gothic novels, highlighting the gothic elements of the works of Emily and Charlotte Brontë, before moving forward through the centuries to examine how the gothic tradition has influenced literature, fashion and culture right up to the present day. The presentation will feature a fabulous array of original costumes and accessories, as well as readings from well-loved writers.

Our Summer Festival events are open to all, but members of the Brontë Society have priority booking until Tuesday 1 May, after which any remaining tickets are released on general sale.
