Charity fashion show

15th September 2008

The Maynard boutique hotel and restaurant is to host Sheffield Newspapers’ 2008 Autumn/Winter Charity Fashion Show on Thursday 25 September. The beneficiary charity will be Macmillan Cancer Care.

Leading representatives of Sheffield’s fashion community will assemble at The Maynard for lunch to see what’s hot and what’s not when it comes to the new styles and colours for the remainder of 2008 and early 2009. Fashion houses showing off their ranges will include Choola, Jaz, Harpers;

Alice Through The Looking Glass; Franks; Alex Kemp; and Tula.

The event starts at 12.30. Tickets cost £25.00 and include lunch and entry to the fashion show. This event is open to members of the public and tickets are available direct from Melinda Gore at Sheffield Newspapers, on 0114 289 4500.

The Maynard’s director, Paul Downing, said: “Our ballroom is busy every weekend for weddings, but is currently underutilised during the week and we are looking at making better use of it by hosting a range of business and evening events. We are delighted to be staging Sheffield Newspapers’ Fashion Show and we are happy to talk to any other events organisers who are looking for a high quality and unusual venue in stunning countryside.

”We are looking forward to the show and would encourage the public to come along to support Macmillan Cancer. For those who think Grindleford is in the middle of nowhere, check out and you will be surprised to see that we are just 8 minutes from Dore and only 13 minutes from Sheffield by train, giving you no excuse not to come and every opportunity to enjoy some wine with your lunch!”

Sheffield Newspapers’ Melinda Gore, organiser of the fashion show, said: “The fashion show at The Maynard will be a great opportunity for the up and coming designers and boutiques of Sheffield to show off the best of South Yorkshire’s Autumn and Winter ranges. We’re delighted to be taking the show to The Maynard which is developing a great reputation as a top quality venue following its boutique hotel refurbishment and the recent award of 2 AA rosettes for its restaurant.”
