Harry Styles' home village searching for experts to run tours for fans

A small Cheshire village is on the hunt for Harry Styles experts to lead tours for fans eager to see where the star grew up. 

Holmes Chapel has seen an increase in fans "coming to pay homage" to the singer, according to the community group Holmes Chapel Partnership (HCP).

Now the group is looking for people with a "flair for storytelling" and a "good knowledge" of the village and its links to Styles to lead guided tours.

The new Harry's Home Village Tour will run on Saturday mornings in June and on weekdays in July, August and September.

Last year, the group published a safe walking route for fans to access Twemlow Viaduct, known as "Harry's Wall", after safety concerns about people crossing the busy A535 to get there.

The bridge was reputedly where Styles had his first kiss. In the This Is Us biopic, the singer returned there and scrawled his name on the wall - and hundreds of fans have since added their names.

But HCP includes a warning on its map telling fans the viaduct is a listed structure and defacing it with graffiti is a criminal offence.

Other spots on the tour will include Mandeville's Bakery, where Styles had a Saturday job before entering X Factor, and Fortune City Restaurant, where he once took Taylor Swift.

Fans will be able to take photos of themselves with the lifesize cardboard cutout of Styles that has a home in the bakery.

HCP is yet to reveal further details about how the tours will work and what they will cost fans to attend.

But the job advert promises flexible working hours and "competitive remuneration".
