About this Event

Anne Lister of Shibden Hall in Halifax, was a Landowner, Industrialist, Explorer and Mountain Climber, Diarist and sometimes described as the first modern day Lesbian. From the early 1800's she regularly visited York .She loved the social hubub of Georgian York. Anne went to school here, visited friends, attended the races, went to parties and balls and shopped - everything from carriages to jewellery. Let us guide you through her footsteps, brought to life by her incredible diaries. We will end our tour at the beautiful Holy Trinity Church where she and her lover Anne Walker took the sacrement together and celebrated their union.

Meet at Micklegatebar to follow her footsteps. Discover the places she visited and hear what she had to say about them in her own words.
