ABOUT THE VENUE
Borwick Hall is mentioned in the Domesday Book as being part of the estates of Roger of Poitou but the oldest parts of the building still in existence date from the 14th century when a pele tower was built on the site.
Now a Grade I listed building, the Hall is built of stone rubble with sandstone dressing and a slate roof and still houses many of the original features.
Session Days has exclusive access to the venue for the weekend and will be organising the seven models onto sets inside and outside the Hall.

PIP THE GENTLEMAN
Having previously appeared on Session Days Events and as one of the top male models on the North West circuit, we just had to invite Pip the Gentleman to join us at Borwick Hall for the weekend. His style, poise and affability are the ideal combination to get top quality portraits from him.
SIMONE CLARE STOCKS
Simone began modelling in equine photography, then was asked to be a model for a workshop…and modelling snowballed from there. having previously appeared for us at Hack Green in January 2019 and as one of the most sought after models in the UK, we just had to ask her to feature for us in the grand location that is Borwick Hall.

Gabby is from Liverpool and specialises in modelling alternative, fantasy and historical characters with costumes that she makes herself. Having previously appeared at Gawsworth Hall for us last year and given the historical significance of Borwick Hall, Gabby was an obvious choice to feature on this event.
