Retailers in Wellingborough have joined forces to showcase their wares at a special fashion event due to take place on Saturday.

The fashion show, organised by the Wellingborough Business Improvement District (BID), will be held at Tithe Barn in the town centre.

The event is free to the public, giving local businesses the chance to have everything from clothing to accessories, hairstyles and make-up shown off on a catwalk.

About 10 local businesses will be involved, including Peacocks, New Look, Au Bon Marche and Brides of Wellingborough.

Models will be strutting their stuff in three shows, each lasting about 30-40 minutes.

BID manager John Cable said: “We were looking to promote the businesses in Wellingborough on a regular basis and thought this would be a good idea.

“We are going to do a similar event with the restaurants and takeaways too.”

The shows will start at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm and are open to the public on presentation of a free invitation.

Invites are available online at the Discover Wellingborough website www.

Everyone will get a free goody bag and a show guide containing special offers from the stores involved and a chance to enter the free prize draw to win a share of £600.
