Promotional Tour de France video filmed in Haworth
9:00am Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
The organisers behind a new promotional video for the Tour de France’s passage through Yorkshire have enjoyed a “brilliant” session of filming in Haworth.
Welcome to Yorkshire filmed on Main Street, showing off the surroundings, while shooting footage of York-based cyclist Ricky Feather.
Andrew Denton, head of media for the Tour de France Grand Depart at Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “The filming in Haworth was great. The sun was shining and there were loads of people coming up and asking us what we doing. They were getting fully behind it all.”
He said the filming, which shows Mr Feather cycling through some of Yorkshire’s most beautiful and dramatic landscapes, had now been completed and was due to be edited. The footage will comprise a four-minute promotional film which will be screened at Welcome to Yorkshire’s roadshows.
Mr Denton said the aim was to give the film additional exposure by making it available for use to businesses and local authorities.
