A couple of weeks ago we celebrated the birthday of a very special lady. Not the Queen (though we do hope you had a lovely 90th birthday Your Majesty!) but Charlotte Brontë, the inspirational author whose most famous novel Jane Eyre is destined to become the newest addition to our repertoire. Born on 21 April 1816, this year is the 200th anniversary of her birth triggering an international celebration of her life, works and all things Brontë.

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.
