In September 2017 the first (but not last) exhibition of The Real Princess of Yorkshire took place in the gorgeous surrounds of Arts at Trinity, in Leeds. Over the 11 day exhibition we had 694 people through the door! The launch party was bonkers in the best way, with around 150 punters and 12 princesses sashaying and lip-syncing. The response was overwhelmingly positive, with the word ’empowering’ cropping up a lot, which felt very rewarding. Here’s some feedback!
“The Real Princess project is BRILLIANT! The photos – this exhibition – wow. And the show tonight. I haven’t laughed so much in a long time. Go princesses! Go!”
“Marvellous and inspiring. Calmness and humour in the middle of Leeds.”
“Fab celebration of wonderful women! Loved the captions as well as the beautiful photos!”
“This feels so empowering, seeing real women so well represented.”
From 19th February to 30th March 2018, some of the photos will be making another appearance in Leeds, this time in the Assembly Bar at Heart in Headingley. This ties in nicely with International Women’s Day on 8th March, so watch this space.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all 32 Princesses once again for taking part in this project, as well as all the venues and other supporters who helped make it happen. Hope you all have a fantastic 2018!
