Join us for an exclusive talk, and drinks reception, to celebrate two costume's from the BBC TV series, "Gentleman Jack", coming to Holy Trinity Church, Goodramgate, in York.

During this exclusive event for CCT members, we will enjoy a sparkling wine drinks reception to cheer the occasion, and we will welcome Angela Clare to talk about the remarkable legacy of Anne Lister's diaries and home, the impact of Gentleman Jack, the costume's from the series, and the famous wedding at Holy Trinity in 1834.

Angela Clare worked as Collections Manager for Calderdale Museums who manage Shibden Hall from 2014- 2024 and was involved in sharing Anne’s story through talks, tours, publications, films and exhibitions. She initiated the digitization and conservation of Anne’s diaries, created two films with Helena Whitbread, and published a novel about Anne Lister and Ann Walker, The Moss House in 2019. She even appeared briefly in Gentleman Jack as Mrs Watson, Mariana Lawton’s lady’s maid.

This event, will also allow our members to view two of the iconic costumes (by renowned fashion/costume designer, Tom Pye), Anne Walker's wedding outfit and bonnet and one of Anne Lister's outfits, and top hot. Both are as worn by the actors, Sophie Rundle and Suranne Jones.

These costumes will then be on general display to the public following this event, from Wednesday, 24 July to Sunday, 4 August 2024 (inclusive). The costumes are being generously loaned  to CCT by Calderdale Museums.
