Living with the Brontes @ Otley Courthouse

This illustrated talk is given by Ann Dinsdale, Principal Curator at the Bronte Parsonage Museum. She will be talking about the whole Bronte family with special attention being given to Patrick, whose time as Minister in Haworth included much work on trying to improve the health of the Haworth residents (who at that time had an average life expectancy of 25 years). Ann will draw on her experience as curator and give us information about the lives of all the family, bringing in some of the details that people may not be as familiar with, and using images of items from the Museum’s collection as illustrations.
Otley Courthouse Bar opens 45 minutes before the event start time.
