More Yuletide entertainment has been on offer for shoppers and visitors to Haworth.

The village hosted a Victorian-themed Christmas weekend last Saturday and Sunday.

Shop owners dressed in Victorian-era clothes and people enjoyed performances by the Sowerby Bridge Morris Dancers and Haworth Brass Band.

There were also Christmas fairs in the Old School Room and in Haworth Parish Church.

Main Street trader Nikki Carroll said the festive season weekends had got off to an excellent start, adding that people were now looking forward to the popular, atmospheric Haworth Torchlight Weekend this coming Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday, there will be a parade down Main Street from 3pm, starting outside the parish church and finishing with carols round the village Christmas tree.

The main procession takes place on Sunday, starting at the bottom of Main Street at 5.15pm and culminating in a traditional carol service in the parish church.

Anyone is welcome to take part in the two parades.

Visitors to the village will also be able to enjoy a selection of music and street entertainment earlier in the afternoon on both days.
