Our events programme for the second half of the year has just been announced, and features a four day festival weekend to celebrate the bicentenary of Emily Brontë’s birth - featuring Lily Cole, Patience Agbabi, The Unthanks and more! #52museums
In 2017, @studioclaretwomey’s “Wuthering Heights - A Manuscript” launched at the Museum. We asked over 10,000 people to help rewrite the text of Emily’s only novel, line by line. HRH The Duchess of Cornwall wrote the last line, and the completed manuscript is on display throughout 2018. #bronte#WHmanuscript#52museums
We’re marking the bicentenary of Emily Brontë’s birth with “Making Thunder Roar,” an exhibition featuring contributions from Lily Cole, Helen Oyeyemi, Maxine Peake and more. #52museums#EBandMe#bronte
Charlotte Brontë wore this bonnet on the day of her wedding to Arthur Bell Nichols in 1854. It was trimmed with greenery and Charlotte was described as looking like a “little snowdrop” in her white dress @bronteparsonage#52museums
Following yesterday’s snap of the #Brontë#quilt, we wanted to share this beautiful replica made by talented quilter Sarah Williamson. It’s on display in Mr Brontë’s bedroom now @bronteparsonagemuseum

Our Brooklands Aircraft Factory and Race Track Revival Project also incorporates new learning opportunities for young people. In the last few years we have been able to start running Saturday Science Clubs. Covering several different topics,
these workshops are designed to encourage young people to study STEM subjects. Workshops have covered Robots, geodetic structures, mechanics and aerodynamics. The next workshop takes place this summer, inspired by the new exhibition teens will be able to make their own propeller.
At Brooklands Museum we welcome over 13,000 School pupils every year. Our year-round programme of activities and workshops explore the incredible story of innovation at Brooklands. The new @heritagelotteryfund supported #mandhawards winning Brooklands Aircraft Factory facility has helped us immerse students into a realistic factory environment. Inside they can clock in and don factory workcoats as they begin their ‘Brooklands Apprenticeship’, throughout the factory floor they can try out aircraft-building techniques at the interactive work stations, design their own aircraft of the future and sit in the cockpit of one of our live aircraft.
