Brontë Tourism - A Place for Anne?

Castlereagh Boutique Hotel, 169 Castlereagh St, Sydney

The Brontë tourist industry is in overdrive with the bicentennial celebrations of the siblings' births. Major events took place in the UK and around the world in 2016 to mark Charlotte's 200th birthday, Patrick Branwell in 2017 and the celebrations for Emily in 2018 will probably be on a similar scale. What will happen in 2020 for Anne? My talk will discuss the extent to which Anne has historically been remembered or overlooked in Brontë tourism, and will suggest ways in which her life and achievements can and should be commemorated.
