I’ve lived in this area for more than 15 years and I can’t believe that up until three weeks ago, I hadn’t visited Haworth, the West Yorkshire village that was home to the Brontë family and their parsonage.
I was invited to take part in a charity fashion show by the team at Haworth-based Piccadilly, a gorgeous independent clothing and accessories shop and Cobbles and Clay, a licensed cafe and pottery painting studio. I went to choose my outfits and to see where the event was to take place and I was blown-away by the quaint, cobbled main street and the range of independent shops. We already have a day in Haworth planned for next week.
The fashion show was in aid of Sue Ryder, Manorlands, a local hospice which provides palliative, neurological and bereavement support. TV presenter and journalist Christa Ackroyd hosted. It was a fabulous evening- so positive and upbeat. It was lovely to meet the other models, most of whom work in Haworth’s shops.
I brought my outfits home so I’ll share more photos and details when I wear each of them, so for now, here are some photographs that captured the spirit of the evening. And do take a look at this Instagram Reel for videos of the evening.
