New Exhibit at the Bronte Parsonage

Bronte Parsonage has a interesting exhibit now showing at the Parsonage. “Defying Expectations: Inside Charlotte Bronte’s Wardrobe” is look at over 20 pieces of clothing and accessories owned by Charlotte. Per the exhibit’s page, Charlotte was nothing like her titular character Jane Eyre when it came to dress. Charlotte had a fondness for fashion and some risque items. Who knew!

The exhibit is curated by Dr.  Eleanore Houghton, a historical fashion consultant. Houghton’s most recent work includes an exhibit featuring the dress of the 19th C author, George Eliot.

The exhibit runs until January 1, 2023 and the cost is part of the museum entry fee. For more information, you can visit the exhibit website.
