The Parsonage Museum in Haworth is the focal point of events commemorating the 150th anniversary of Charlotte Bronte's death with a spectacular visual show.

Dissolving sequences of moor land scenes will be projected onto the front of the museum, marrying traditional views with modern technology on Friday.

Inside the museum video projections will depict silhouetted profiles of the Bronte children at play.

A wreath will be laid at Haworth on the actual date of her death on 31 March.

The visual show has been funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, an independent organisation which gives grants to community projects.

Museum spokesman Andrew McCarthy said: "The exhibition will continue the work we are doing not only to increase people's awareness and understanding of the Brontes but to establish the museum as a centre for contemporary creativity.

"We want to add to the traditional methods of displaying the museum and try to reflect the remarkable creative energies that were generated here during the Brontes' time".
