The Brussels Brontë Group was formed in
2006 by Brontë Society members in Belgium and the Netherlands. The
aim was to bring together people interested in the Brontës and in
the places associated with Charlotte and Emily’s time in Brussels
Our members now include people of a wide range of nationalities. We welcome anyone who is interested in the works and lives of the Brontës and would like to know more about their stay at the Pensionnat Heger (the school where Charlotte and Emily were pupil-teachers).
We organise talks, guided walks and other
events through the year in Brussels and run a nineteenth-century
literature reading group. Our weekend of events in April each year
celebrates Charlotte Brontë’s birthday (21 April). Visit our
events page for more information.
Visit our blog for reports on past events
and articles on original research done by members of the Group.
