Brontë Parsonage Museum

The Brontë Parsonage Museum 2023 exhibition, The Brontës and the Wild, considers how landscape, weather and the natural world play an important role in the lives and work of the Brontës.

Highlights of this fascinating new exhibition include the Brontë family copy of Thomas Bewick’s A History of British Birds, poetry manuscripts by Emily and Charlotte, early printed works by Patrick Brontë, copies from Bewick by Emily and Charlotte, plus two wood blocks on loan from the Wordsworth Trust.

Displays will also include items from the 2022 film EMILY, including a signed copy of the screenplay.

The Brontës and the Wild is curated by Ann Dinsdale and Sarah Laycock and opens at the Brontë Parsonage Museum on February 1.

Admission to the exhibition is free with entry to the Museum.

The artistic programme will focus on the natural world and our relationship with it, bringing in ideas around climate change and sustainability. For full details of each event, including how to book, please visit the website.
