ITV and Continuum Attractions have teamed up to present an incredible opportunity for fans of popular British soap operas, Emmerdale and Coronation Street. The two companies are proud to announce the launch of the ‘All Star Summer’ event, which will feature selected cast members from both shows joining visitors during afternoon visits every weekend until early September.
The ‘Star Tours,’ previously a tremendous success at the new Coronation Street Experience, will now be introduced at the Emmerdale Village Tour for the first time. This exciting addition is expected to enhance the already immersive experiences provided by both attractions.
Throughout the summer season, guests will have the opportunity to embark on guided tours of Emmerdale’s picturesque Yorkshire village set or take a leisurely stroll along Coronation Street’s iconic cobbled streets. As an added surprise, visitors will be delighted by a special appearance from a secret cast member who will greet them, pose for photographs, and engage in meet-and-greet sessions.
Neil Curry, Guest Experience Manager from Continuum Attractions says “Our guests tell us they want to get as close to the shows as possible, they also say that meeting the cast is one of their all time ‘bucket list wishes’, so we thought we’d turn the Summer into a soap meet and greet spectacular!
It’s genuinely the best fun to see the surprise and excitement when our visitors come face to face with one of their favourite cast members on the actual set where they work”.
James Penfold, ITV’s Controller Commercial, Brand Licensing said “We’re really excited to say that some of the biggest names on our shows will be waiting to say hi to those lucky enough to get these tickets. These are once in a lifetime moments for so many people, a lot who have travelled from the other side of the world to visit us. It’s definitely going to be a Summer to remember”.
With up to 1000 guests visiting each day, fans need to book as soon as possible to not be disappointed.
The ‘All Star Summer’ event marks a unique collaboration between ITV and Continuum Attractions, designed to cater to the insatiable appetite of soap opera enthusiasts. By merging the allure of behind-the-scenes tours with unexpected encounters with beloved actors, the event aims to offer an unparalleled and truly immersive experience for visitors.
