One Direction World – a sneak peek


Do you fancy yourself the ultimate One Direction fan? Think you’ve seen all there is to see, snapped up every single, collected every possible trincket the boys have put out there? Well, smash open that piggy bank and think again, because as of Saturday 23rd March One Direction are no longer just a boyband – they’re a shop!

Yes, for a strictly limited three weeks, One Direction fans in the Yorkshire area can browse through aisle upon aisle of exclusive 1D merchandise in their first ever UK pop-up shop in the wild ‘n’ windy city of Leeds. We sent our Northern correspondant John Lucas down for an exclusive first-look…

One Direction World, LeedsOMG! It’s One Direction world! A literal world of One Direction! It’s closed to the public for now, but will open its doors at 9am on Saturday 23rd March. Despite the rumours, the boys themselves will sadly not be attending the grand opening – something the managers were very keen for me to stress, for fear of being torn limb-from-limb by furious fangirls who camped overnight for a glimpse of Harry & co. (Note: Camping overnight is also strongly discouraged – it’s freezing up here!)

One Direction World - InsideI’m ushered through the door and come face to face with a dazzling display of 1D goodies. T-Shirts, Hoodies, Keyrings, Bags… everything the discerning One Directioner could ever need… and, let’s be honest, a fair few things they probably don’t….

One Direction - The Bag!The kudos associated with brandishing your own stylish 1D travel bag is certainly worth a few quid…

One Direction - The Cups!…but £15 for some cheap branded cups? Oh boys, for shame…

One Direction - The Nails!…and frankly I don’t even know where to begin with these stalkeriffic One Direction Fake Nails!

One Direction - The Wall! The One Direction Signing Wall is looking pretty bare right now, but will soon be emblazoned with declarations of love from visiting fans. (Keep it clean, ladies…)

One Direction - The Goodie Bags!Alas, I wasn’t permitted to take home a Goodie Bag…

One Direction - and me!…but I did manage to grab a slightly deranged photo op with scarily lifelike cardboard Liam. Surprisingly enough, I was swiftly ushered out shortly after this shot…

If you want to check out 1D World for yourself, get down to the Trinity Centre in Leeds City Centre between Saturday 23rd March and Sunday 14th April. Check out the 1D World website for all the details…
