This Civic Society illustrated talk is our next random event pulled from the treasure chest which is What's On Richmond.
You may have seen the excellent BBC series with Suranne Jones as Anne Lister (photo). You may already know of Lister's lesbian 'marriage' at Holy Trinity Church in York. But there's much more to her than the scandals. Her diaries, largely in code which wasn't decrypted until long after her death, are full of fascinating period details, including her development of historic Shibden Hall, and her interests in landscaping, mining, railways, and canals in the West Riding.
David Glover's talk is in Richmond School, at 19:30 on Wednesday 7 September. Tickets, on the door, are £5, and you can find more details at the Richmond Civic Society website.
