Posted: 03 Jun 2014 by | with 1 comments


At Cedar Court Hotels we’re proud of our Yorkshire roots which is why we’re looking forward to a fantastic new exhibition at Huddersfield Art Gallery, Yorkshire Made Me.
 

Sir Patrick Stewart

How many famous people can you name that are Yorkshire born?


The chances are that many on your list will be appearing in this collection of photographic portraits which celebrates some of the most significant Yorkshire folk of 21st Century Britain.
 
The list really does sound like a veritable Yorkshire who’s who!
 
From York’s own Dame Judi Dench and Bradford’s David Hockney, to Monty Python star and globetrotter Michael Palin and the first Brit in space Helen Sharman (both originally from Sheffield) they’re all on display.
 
Also in the exhibition are the great and the good from across the worlds of TV, film, the arts and sports including:
 

Sir Michael Parkinson Sir Patrick Stewart
Brian Robinson Maureen Lipman
Nicola Adams Hannah Cockroft
Geoff Boycott Dickie Bird
Joanne Harris Sally Wainwright
John Godber Kay Mellor

 

Yorkshire in front of the lens and behind the camera


Brian RobinsonThe images are extremely intimate and informal, with the subjects allowing glimpses in to what makes them proud to be from the county and why the region is so special to them.
 
Of course, these people wouldn’t trust any person with a camera to take their portraits – they had to be from Yorkshire too! (The fact that Lynne Fletcher and Jennifer Robertson are award winning photographers probably helped as well.)
 
Whether you are lucky enough to be from Yorkshire or not, it is a must see if you’re visiting Cedar Court Hotel, Huddersfield or any of our other Yorkshire hotels from 7 June until 30 August 2014.
