Remembering Anne Bronte:

A memorial service dedicated to her life, Legacy and memory

Tuesday 28th May, 4.00pm to 5.00pm

On May 28 1849, Anne Brontë passed away at Wood’s Lodgings, Scarborough. On the 175th anniversary of her death, The Anne Brontë Association in asociation with Big Ideas By The Sea will hold a one-hour remembrance service in her honour at St. Mary’s Church, Scarborough. Anne’s funeral could not be held at St. Mary’s due to the church’s renovation work, so it would be wonderful to hold a service in the church she loved so much. Anne is buried in St. Mary’s churchyard.

The service would be completely centred on Anne’s work and writing, her contribution to Scarborough’s literary and artistic landscape, and her legacy in the town.

After the service join us in a visit to Anne’s grave and tombstone.
