ITV announce ‘Corrie event of a lifetime’


ITV announce ‘Corrie event of a lifetime’

ITV’s ‘Coronation Street Experience’ is offering fans the chance to watch a crucial, nail biting, episode with the main character sitting in the same room as them! But are you brave enough?

ITV’s Controller of Global Brand Licensing (UK), James Penfold:

“We know the viewers want the chance to connect more closely with our programmes and at ‘Corrie’ our new visitor centre gives us the opportunity to do just that.

“It’s exciting for all of us to be able to give fans the chance to experience something unique.  This event is the start of a series of special evenings which we hope will not only give fans memories for a lifetime, it will also give our cast and crew the chance to meet the people who make the show what it is, our viewers”.

Friday 13th October – a date considered unlucky for some – will see the new ‘Coronation Street Experience’ building host a very special evening. In control of proceedings is ‘Soap Queen’, Sharon Marshall, as this unforgettable event celebrates the legacy of Corrie and its latest villain, Stephen Reid, portrayed by Todd Boyce.

Guests will need to take a deep breath as they take a seat in the viewing room, alongside ‘Stephen’, to watch live with the rest of the nation to discover if he will escape justice or finally pay for his crimes.  Then, as the closing credits play and the rest of the UK goes to put the kettle on, they will join a group Q&A session with the man himself,  giving them a unique behind the scenes experience of what it’s like to be Corrie’s latest bad boy!

Premium (the bravest?) ticket holders will also get the chance to meet the man himself for a one to one chat and photo behind the bar of the replica ‘Rovers’.

Todd Boyce:

“I can’t wait to watch our fans watch me, with me, as my storyline heads towards one of its biggest moments yet!  That said, I’m slightly nervous at their reaction – they all know what Stephen’s been up to, I’m just hoping Sharon is as good a bodyguard as I know she will be a host!?”
