Anne Lister Memorial Weekend – Shibden Hall, 600 hundred years of history and more: Presented by David Glover

Price: £6

Event description

You may know about Anne Lister, but what do you know about her family home at Shibden? An expert will guide you through the Hall’s story from its earliest times around 1421, with stories of the resident families. Where are the Waterhouse monuments? Who was the famous British military commander born at the Hall? What happened to the estate after Ann Walker died in 1854? Then there’s the tale of John Lister ‘the last’, his conversion to Catholicism, and his Socialism. Not to be missed!

Ticket income from David Glover’s Illustrated Local History talks goes directly into supporting Square Chapel.
