Glamorous girls, a roulette table and an Aston Martin will make appearances as a James Bond theme kicks off a gift fair next week.

The boutique fair will take place at Knepp Castle in Shipley and contain more than 80 stalls.

Funds will be raised for St Catherine’s Hospice, with ten per cent of proceeds set to be donated to the charity.

Volunteer organiser Sally Pavey said: “We are excited, every walkway will offer buyers something different, like parades of boutiques in a large luxury marquee, presenting something that visitors will appreciate whilst knowing that 10 per cent of every pound spent goes to the hospice appeal.”

All things 007 will be celebrated on the preview night, which begins at 6pm on Wednesday.

Musician Andrew Bernardi will arrive with his Bond girls and perform with his Stradivarius violin along with the youth string group ’The Gifted and Talented String Academy’.

The fair day runs between 9.30am and 4pm on Thursday, and hand-selected stalls include homewares, home accessories and fashion and glamour - including many items unavailable on the high street. Visitors will receive fun money to play on the roulette, with prizes up for grabs.

Admission on fair day is £5, including refreshments on arrival.
