A MAKERS' Christmas market showcasing independent creatives takes place in Haworth this month.

The free-admission event is being held in the Old School Room, Church Street, on Saturday, November 11, and Sunday, November 12, from 10am to 4pm.

There will be 17 artisan makers, from this area and other parts of Yorkshire, who will be spotlighting and selling their wares.

A wide range of goods will be on offer.

Behind the initiative are Bronte Bitch, which produces a merchandise range inspired by the famous literary family, and Haworth & Yorkshire Creatives.

A spokesperson said: "We are thrilled to be introducing some new creatives at the event, giving them a platform to shine, whilst also welcoming back some of our talented regulars and favourites.

"We urge people to support their independents – shop local, and visit their online shops."

The Old School Room, between the parish church and parsonage, is synonymous with the Brontes.

Opened in 1832, the recently-refurbished building was constructed by Patrick Bronte and the whole family taught there.

The makers' market is the latest in a series at the venue, and the last of the year.
