Day Trip

Description

PLEASE NOTE:

Please check websites of all organisations or businesses before you visit. With the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, many businesses are changing their opening hours.


Join us for a pre-Festival day-trip to visit the Brontë Parsonage at Haworth, which is celebrating 200 years since the birth of Anne Brontë. Your trip will include:


Executive coach travel from Huddersfield to Keighley.


A trip on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway from Keighley to Haworth – there will be opportunities to see several steam locomotives as part of this special Steam Gala Day.


Time to explore Haworth and treat yourself to lunch.


A 45-minute illustrated talk introducing the fascinating Brontë family, with a particular focus on Anne Brontë. You will learn about Anne’s early life in Haworth, her creation of vivid imaginary worlds with her siblings and the years she spent working as a governess, before turning her hand to writing her astonishing novels.


A self-guided tour of the Bronte Parsonage with a chance to see Charlotte Brontë’s ‘Little Book’, recently purchased following a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign. No bigger than a matchbox, this little book is one in a series written by Charlotte when she was just 14, and it contains new and unpublished material about her imaginary world of Angria.


Return coach trip from Haworth to Huddersfield.


Please note: in the event of bad weather the Festival reserves the right to rearrange the tour and anyone who is unable to make the new date will receive a full refund.


Age guidance: 16+

Pick-up and drop-off point: in front of the Siam Square Restaurant, 72-76 John William St, Huddersfield HD1 1EH – just below St George’s Square (Railway Station).


Note: the coach will leave at 9.30am prompt so you will need to arrive in advance of this time. A full itinerary will be emailed to you closer to the date. Any queries in advance, please contact Sally Brown: marketing@huddlitfest.org.uk
