South Square Centre is located on the outskirts of Bradford in Thornton, a village which is also the birthplace of the three Bronte sisters. April 2016 marks the bicentenary of Charlotte Bronte’s birth, so to celebrate all of South Square’s exhibitors will be women and there will be a range of artworks, events and activities in response to this throughout April and May.
