Are you daring enough to witness Stephen Reid on screen with… Stephen Reid in the same room?
ITV’s ‘Coronation Street Experience’ has announced that tickets are now available for the event of a lifetime, offering fans the opportunity to watch a pivotal, heart-pounding episode with the main character right there with them! But do you have the courage?
On Friday, 13th October (a date considered unlucky by some), the new ‘Coronation Street Experience’ building will host a truly special evening. Leading the proceedings is the ‘Soap Queen’ herself, Sharon Marshall, as this unforgettable event pays tribute to the legacy of Corrie and its newest antagonist, Stephen Reid, skillfully portrayed by the talented Todd Boyce.
Guests will need to take a deep breath as they settle into the viewing room alongside ‘Stephen’, joining the rest of the nation in witnessing whether he will elude justice or finally face the consequences of his crimes. Following the rolling credits and as the rest of the UK goes off to make tea, attendees will engage in a group Q&A session with the man himself, offering them an exclusive peek behind the scenes into the life of Corrie’s latest troublemaker!
For the boldest ticket holders, the Premium option offers a chance to meet the man himself for a one-on-one chat and a photo opportunity behind the bar of the replica ‘Rovers’.
ITV’s Controller of Global Brand Licensing (UK), James Penfold says; “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”.
Actor, Todd Boyce, said; “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!?”
Available for purchase from today at coronationstreetexperience.co.uk and projected to be the most sought-after ticket in town, this is every fan’s chance to encounter one of Weatherfield’s most notorious villains while celebrating the UK’s most cherished soap.
