‹‹ Back to News & What's On
Haworth’s Brontë Parsonage Museum has been shortlisted for a prestigious Museums + Heritage Award in the category of Best Shop. 

The annual Museums + Heritage Awards, now in their sixteenth year, recognise projects of excellence, innovation and ground-breaking initiatives from galleries and visitor attractions across the UK and overseas.  The Best Shop Award is new for 2018 and judges museums on their product range and marketing as well as financial success. 
The Brontë Parsonage Museum has been shortlisted alongside the shops of National Museums Liverpool, Bury Art Museum, Jodrell Bank and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery in Exeter.
Rebecca Yorke, Head of Communications and Marketing said:  ‘Our exclusive Brontë-inspired ranges by artists and designers including Kate Lycett and Hannah Nunn, combined with the excellent level of customer service provided by our staff,  are key to the success of our Museum shop.  Many of our customers are Museum visitors but we are working hard to establish the shop as a must-visit destination in its own right, and raise awareness of our online offer.  Being shortlisted for this award will help us to realise those ambitions.’
Danielle Cadamarteri, Retail Manager at the Brontë Parsonage Museum said: ‘We’re delighted to have been recognised in this way and I am tremendously proud of the retail team.’
The winners will be announced by Rev Richard Coles at a ceremony in London in May.
