Stars of the hit period drama charting the life of Anne Lister returned to Halifax for the series 2 premiere on Tuesday evening.
Alongside stars such as Suranne Jones, Gemma Whelan and Sally Wainwright, a few other notable attendees such as Coronation Street’s Jennie McAlpine and Paralympian Hannah Cockroft were also in attendance.
The show marks a welcome return to Yorkshire after a long three year wait, with the second exciting instalment of the drama continuing to chart the life of Anne Lister, a pioneering diarist often described as the ‘first modern lesbian’.
Describing the experience of returning for a second series, Suranne Jones said “The first time, I was getting in, feeling my way through the landscape, and the second time it was like coming home. So when I came last night, it just reminds me how beautiful Yorkshire is – and Sally made that part of the show. So Shibden and Yorkshire are almost like a character, like another character which is gorgeous!””
Although the show doesn’t officially return to our screens until April 10, a handful of lucky viewers were able to bag themselves a sneak peak of episode one at tonight’s premiere.
