The Titteringtons and Branwell Bronté

Alan Titterington [Heath 1953–1958], whose novel about the relationship between his great-great-grandparents, Mary and John Titterington, and Branwell Bronté, St John in the Wilderness, was published last year, has been involved in two events marking the bicentenary of the birth of Branwell Bronté.

The first was at the Pyramid Gallery, Stonegate, York where portraits of Mary and John Titterington, painted by Branwell Bronté, were on show. The second was on Saturday, 1 July 2017 at the Lord Nelson in Luddenden village where the portraits were on display and, as well as songs from folk singer, John Bromley, poems by Branwell were read by Gareth Tudor Price.

Alan’s novel is available from Amazon for £9.99.

With thanks to Rod Eastwood [1954–1961] for drawing attention to this.
