Animal magic in Helmsley as the Yorkshire Vet pays a visit

Julian Norton to host a book signing at Claridges in Helmsley on 28th September

Fans of TV’s The Yorkshire Vet can meet the star of the show, Julian Norton, at a book signing at Claridges in Helmsley later this month.

Julian Norton will be in the store, based on Church Street in Helmsley, on 28th September between 3pm and 4.30pm to sign copies of his new book ‘The Diary of a Yorkshire Vet’.

From hairy pigs at Helmsley to llamas near Brimham Rock, the true stories in ‘The Diary of a Yorkshire Vet’ bring to life the drama and humour in the daily routine of a rural vet. The book is a series of articles from his popular column in the Yorkshire Post, telling anecdotes from his veterinary work in North Yorkshire. Julian has worked in mixed practice in rural North Yorkshire for the majority of his twenty-one years as a vet, mainly in the market town of Thirsk, before moving his practice to Boroughbridge. In 2015, Julian became involved with the hit TV series The Yorkshire Vet, which continues to be a popular Channel 5 show.

Ken Claridge, who owns Claridges, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Julian Norton back to Claridges for another book signing. The events are always a huge hit – his books are always a very entertaining read, and he’s a really interesting and friendly person to meet. Shoppers could even be thinking a few months ahead – a signed copy of The Diary of a Yorkshire Vet would make a great Christmas present.”

‘The Diary of a Yorkshire Vet’ is on sale for £11.99. If you would like a signed copy but are unable to attend you can pre-order one by calling 01439 770401. Claridges has been based in Helmsley for more than 50 years, and as well as selling toys, greeting cards and stationery, it specialises in books written about the local area, or from local authors.
