Charlotte Brontë was born two hundred years ago on 21 April 1816. With our new production of Jane Eyre just around the corner we’re celebrating by taking a look at the impact she and her writings still have today.

We'd like to wish Dame Gillian Lynne a very happy birthday from all of us at Northern Ballet as she turns 90 on Saturday 20 February.
Dame Gillian first worked with Northern Ballet in 1987 creating A Simple Man based on the life and works of LS Lowry. The piece went on to win a BAFTA and introduced the Company to Christopher Gable CBE who went on to become our Artistic Director.
In 1989 she choreographed Lipizzaner and in 2009 she returned to Northern Ballet to choreograph On Such A Night for our 40th anniversary celebrations.

Since the new year, me and Ernest the Tortoise have been helping Northern Ballet spread the word about their ballet Tortoise & the Hare which is being performed at theatres across the country. My friends the dancers will be performing to hundreds of children - how exciting!
I’ve been having a great time rushing up and down the country with my friends Philippa and Keisha, meeting lots of children to tell them all about our show. I’ve had so much to do that I’ve left Ernest behind as he’s much too slow.
