The Brontë Parsonage Museum is thrilled to present this new audio experience featuring the poems of Emily Brontë set to music by composer and pianist Adrian McNally and recorded by The Unthanks.

Shall Earth No More Inspire Thee is a song cycle of ten poems offering audiences the opportunity to follow in Emily’s footsteps up on to nearby Penistone Hill where the dramatic landscape which so inspired Emily and her sisters can be experienced and enjoyed.

Commissioned by the Brontë Society to celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of Emily Brontë, Shall Earth No More Inspire Thee is free with entrance to the Brontë Parsonage Museum.

Places on this special experience are limited so participants are advised to reserve headsets in advance of their visit by using the booking links on this page.

Participants will be required to leave a £10 cash deposit when collecting the audio sets. This will be returned when the audio sets are brought back to the Museum at the end of the walk.

The walk lasts approximately 40 minutes and although the terrain is uneven in places, the paths are well trodden. Warm clothing and sturdy footwear is recommended.  Participants agree to undertake the walk at their own risk.
