UCLan literary expert to provide insight on exclusive educational tour of Haworth

A renowned literary expert from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is offering fiction fans an opportunity not to be missed.

Dr Theresa Saxon, a specialist in 19th Century Literature, is presenting an educational lecture in Haworth, home to the world-famous Brontë sisters.

To ensure that you don’t miss out on Dr Saxon’s lecture, an exclusive trip is being organised.

Devoted Brontë followers will spend a day in Haworth, one of the region’s most important literary locations, and experience the settings and atmosphere which inspired the classic novels of Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

The UCLan organised trip is taking place on Sunday 15 December and includes transport, lunch, a tour of the Brontë Parsonage, Dr Saxon’s academic lecture, an opportunity to discuss their work and the village’s Christmas torchlight procession.

“Their work is known throughout the world and there are plenty of devoted Brontë fans who love the chance to spend the day in Haworth.”

Dr Saxon tells us: “The literary work of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë are very specific to the scenery and society of Haworth. We can get a sense of the role played by location in the development of literary classics through exploring their works in the place where they were written.

“The Brontë novels are as popular now as they were when they were first published. Their work is known throughout the world and there are plenty of devoted Brontë fans who love the chance to spend the day in Haworth.”

Tickets cost £138.45 and for more information and booking information please contact Theresa Saxon on 01772 893031 TSaxon@uclan.ac.uk or book directly via Eventbrite on https://www.eventbrite.com/event/9087225135.
