Gary Barlow to create Calendar Girls musical

Gary Barlow will write a musical based on The Calendar Girls.

Welcome to Yorkshire have confirmed that the musician will pen a production based on the nude charity calendar women.

Eleven members of the Women's Institute in Rylstone, North Yorkshire created a naked calendar in 1999 and their story spawned a hit movie.

Chief of Welcome to Yorkshire Gary Verity commented:

"To have someone of Gary Barlow's calibre working on a Yorkshire musical is amazing and I am sure, like the Calendar Girls film and the stage play, this musical will be a huge success."

The news was announced as part of a series of promotional events lined up for Yorkshire.

The Calendar Girls film meanwhile was released in 2003 and it starred the likes of Helen Mirren and Julie Walters.
