Vote for us now!
Vote Brontë Parsonage ‘Britain’s Best’ historical site with UKTV History!
This year, Brontë Parsonage is involved in UKTV History’s Britain’s Best campaign to find the nation’s favourite historic site. Hosted by Alan Titchmarsh, the campaign will involve two television series and a final programme presenting the winner as decided by you, the British public.
With voting drawing to a close, show your support for the Parsonage by voting online at www.uktvhistory.co.uk, call 09011 31 2007 (calls cost 50p) or text BEST BRONTE PARSONAGE to 83222 (texts cost 50p plus standard network charges). You can also vote in person using the voting boxes at the Parsonage.
With just 1,500 votes we need your support and as someone who values the Parsonage we would ask that you take the time to vote for us. The website also gives you the opportunity to express why the Parsonage is important to you by writing your own review and/or uploading any images you may have of the Museum.
Watch Britain’s Best on UKTV History (Sky channel 537, Virgin TV 203 and Freeview 12) from 23 July to 27 August, and don’t miss the result on 17 September to see whether your support has paid off!
Still on the subject of voting........make sure you have voted for our Collections Manager Ann Dinsdale's handsome recent book The Brontës at Haworth. This is up for a new award which celebrates the very best of Yorkshire writing. The winner will be announced at the end of September at the Richmond Book Festival by local MP William Hague.
Ready-made voting cards are available in libraries and bookshops or you could visit www.richmondbookfestival.com. The closing date is soon - 31 July.
