The future of the Brontë Parsonage Museum is at risk. The Brontë Society, who run the museum at Haworth, say that the COVID-19 lockdown closures have produced an estimated loss of £500,000. After receiving money from Arts Council England’s Emergency Response fund, the end-of-year deficit will be £100,000, placing the future of the Museum at risk.
The Brontë Parsonage Museum offers visitors a unique view of the environment the Brontës lived and wrote in and provides a focus for continuing to study and research their lives and work.
The Brontë Society has launched a JustGiving page to raise funds. Visit it if you’d like to help keep this piece of history available to everyone.
