They were married last year and now live in Halifax, between Leeds and Manchester, in a restored 1970s condo, overlooking Calderdale’s hills and valleys!

In 2010 Jayne Sheridan’s book on Hollywood, Christian Dior, Audrey Hepburn,Vivienne Westwood, Mary Quant, Paul Smith, ‘The New Black Magic,’ sold more than a thousand copies; is in every Fashion  library. This year she will talk on Mary Quant at the V&A.

His book ‘Text and Drugs and Rock and Roll” came out in hardback in 2013, and in paperback, later the same year. Simon and Jayne both contribute to BBC radio shows on their subjects and take part in television and radio features on Music and Fashion.

My Specialist Subjects

Popular Music

Popular Music in the 1960s makes up the content of Simon Warner's talks. He likes to talk about passengers favourites - whether Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan or The Stones.

Film & Fashion

How Hollywood made the going for the Fashion industry, whether Audrey Hepburn in 'Roman Holiday' or Meryl Streep in 'The Devil Wears Prada are the hot topics in Jayne's programme! She collects stories about personal Fashion favourites and enjoys swapping anecdotes with the Girls!

Plays, films and television

There's a radio 4 Fashion play written by Jayne coming up and a television series. How these are coming along will be part of her presentations! Simon is organising a series of movies about Jack Kerouac in his home town of Halifax and he welcomes exchanges with fellow Beat lovers in the bar, the dining room or his talks!


Simon and Jayne have entertained my friends and family at barbecues for many summers. Their passion for their topics always inspires our guests and I'm sure your passengers will be as happy with their enthusiastic personalities as we have always been. I know Simon as a lecturer in Popular Music and Jayne through her involvement with PR and Publicity campaigns.
