Celebrating Anne Lister’s Legacy Tuesday 22 September

Tuesday 22 September 2020 marks 180 years since the death of Anne Lister of Shibden Hall.

Anne, who lived from 1791 to 1840, was a remarkable woman: a diarist, landowner, entrepreneur, mountaineer, scholar, traveller and lesbian. Anne’s story inspired Sally Wainwright’s BBC/HBO hit TV show ‘Gentleman Jack’, which was filmed here in Calderdale.

We’ll celebrate Anne Lister’s extraordinary life with a series of online events – and we’ll be encouraging people to post short videos about what Anne means to them. Get involved! Find out more.
