Unfortunately this event has been cancelled. We apologise for any disappointment caused.

Join Scottish Makar Jackie Kay at the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth to explore her poem inspired by Anne Brontë, and specially commissioned by BLF.

In the hometown of the Brontë sisters, you’ll hear about why Jackie chose to respond to Anne’s work in particular, where she found the inspiration for her own piece, and what her involvement in this iconic project means to her.

This special evening is a chance to meet one of the country’s leading writers, who has become nothing less than a national treasure, as she discusses the work of an under-appreciated member of the famous Brontë family.
