The Gaskell Society and its partners host a year-round programme of meetings and special events, most of which are open to everyone. We’re very friendly – and we’d love to meet you, whether or not you choose to join the Society.

October Pen Portrait
6 October, 3:00 pm - 3:15 pm
Published writer and Gaskell House volunteer Philip Watts has created a collection of four monologues in the form of imaginary letters in which members of the Gaskell circle – Elizabeth, William, Margaret and Charlotte Brontë – discuss the artistic representations of themselves to be found in the house.
Each lasts ten minutes and provides an entertaining way to learn more about the house and its occupants.
One of the monologues will be performed every first Sunday of the month at 3pm in one of the period rooms.
Included in Admission. Just turn up – no need to book.
As you’ll appreciate, arrangements can change, so please be sure to check details before you leave home.
