Part of the 2019 Summer Festival

2019 marks the two hundredth anniversary of the birth of Arthur Bell Nicholls. An integral part of the Brontë family story, Mr Nicholls' story is often overshadowed by the biographies of the Parsonage's more famous inhabitants. In this interesting talk, Stephen Whitehead shares the story of the most intimate witness to the triumphs and tragedies of the Brontës' adult lives.

Stephen Whitehead was a Brontë Parsonage Museum assistant for thirteen years. He has contributed seven major papers to Brontë Studies, a chapter to The Brontës in Context (2012) and his guidebook, The Brontës' Haworth, was re-issued by the Brontë Society in 2017. His two novels, The Last Brontë, about Arthur Bell Nicholls, and Of Love & Duty, about the Nelson/Hamilton ménage, were published in 2017 and 2018.
Tickets £3/free to Brontë Society members. Available here and by calling 01535 640192 from Tuesday 30 April.
