About the festival

The Brontë Festival of Women’s Writing champions female creativity and celebrates the legacy of the UK’s most famous literary sisters – the Brontës. Every year in Haworth, West Yorkshire, former home of the Brontë family, the Brontë Parsonage Museum produces a weekend of events, talks and workshops that seek to inspire, entertain and intrigue visitors from across the world.

This year we are pleased to be partnering with local business  Cobbles and Clay  who will be hosting a number of our events.
