We started Anne's bicentenary year so full of hope for her. Her bicentenary would crown the previous bicentenaries and the world would finally get to know and love Anne and her work. And yet 2020 had other plans for all of us.

We are still hopeful that next year she will get the celebrations and recognition she deserves, which she has deserved for the best part of these 200 years.

Today is the anniversary of her death in Scarborough and we will appropriate her last words to Charlotte because they come in handy for her unexpectedly ghastly bicentenary.

'Take courage, Charlotte, take courage'
