ONE OF Yorkshire’s best-known actors is to take part in the Huddersfield Literature Festival in March.
Sir Patrick Stewart, raised in Mirfield, is patron to the festival and will appear on Friday March 16 at Huddersfield Town Hall at 7.30pm.
He will be in conversation with playwright, broadcaster and journalist Nick Ahad, talking about his love of words and how stories have inspired him as an actor.
As well as a distinguished career as a stage actor, including many Shakespearean roles, Sir Patrick is known for his portrayals of Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men series of movies and Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the TV series and movies of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Tickets will go on sale through Huddersfield Town Hall today. Tickets can be booked on (01484) 225755.
