Shops in the Westgate arcade in Halifax have joined forces to host a celebration for the arrival of the Tour de France this weekend.

The Grand Depart visits Calderdale on Sunday, and 10 shops are organising a French-themed Tour de Westgate festival between 10am and 4pm on Saturday.

The shops will all have discounts and special offers to visitors on the day.

Hayley Plummer, from Shoobyloo, one of the shops involved, said: “We’re really excited that people will be coming to Yorkshire and the spotlight will be in our region this weekend.

“It’s a great opportunity to show what Yorkshire has to offer and hopefully it will result in more business for us in the future.

“Thanks to everyone who has helped organise the event and hopefully it’ll be a big success.”
