POSTPONED UNTIL 2021 SOLD OUT Amanda Owen: the Yorkshire Shepherdess (HLF 2020)
September 27 @ 15:00 - 16:00£7 - £10
After consulting with the council and reviewing the risks and restrictions likely to still be in place this autumn, Huddersfield Literature Festival has made the difficult decision to postpone to a later date, both for safety reasons and to ensure that the events they run offer a positive experience to our audiences, which they don’t feel we can do in the current circumstances.
The next Festival will run from 18-28 March 2021 and they will rearrange these events for during or as close to these dates as possible, based on author availability.
We appreciate your patience and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
HLF has emailed all ticket holders to let them know. They hope that you will bear with us and hold on to your tickets, which will remain valid. However, if you would like a refund please email firstname.lastname@example.org
From teenage Goth in Huddersfield to rural sheep farmer…
Star of the C5 series, Our Yorkshire Farm, Amanda Owen grew up in Huddersfield but was inspired by the James Herriot books to find work as a shepherdess, cow milker and alpaca shearer. Today, she runs a 2,000-acre sheep farm at Ravenseat in the Yorkshire Dales, along with her husband Clive and nine children.
A Sunday Times bestselling author, Amanda has entertained readers with her trademark Yorkshire grit and humour in The Yorkshire Shepherdess and A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess. Her latest book, Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess, is an uplifting and inspiring update on life on the farm, from facing the brutal winter of 2018 to renovating an old farmhouse as a new family home.
Voted ‘Yorkshirewoman of the Year’ by The Dalesman magazine, Amanda has also appeared on ITV’s Countrywise and The Dales, and in Ben Fogle’s New Lives in the Wild.
Amanda will be interviewed by BBC Radio York presenter Jeremy Buxton at this fun and entertaining event for Mothers’ Day.
