Notice to Corrie Fans in Halifax Area

The Halifax Chronicle Herald reports that it looks fairly certain that one of Coronation Street’s big names will be stopping by to say hello to Halifax, early in the New Year. No word yet on which personality, but the date is Feb. 28, so make a note on your calendar.

And speaking of Corrie, there are still seats available on a special tour of England next year, one that includes a visit to the normally closed Coronation Street set. You can get details by calling Maritime Travel/Atlantic American Express Travel Service. Toll free 866-788-9775. 492-6707 in metro Halifax or 794-7251 in North Sydney.

I saw our Les last year in HFX -- he wore his famous snakeskin 'pulling' jacket -- and met Eileen the year before.

This is a terrific event, always lots of fun, and a big favorite of mine!

After spending a day or two in Halifax, the star heads to TO for a day or two.

Hi Anonymous,
Let us know if you're interested in becoming a Corrie Canuck contributor so you can post all about the upcoming Halifax event.

Sounds good.

Right now I'm negotiating the night off to attend.

Rumour has it the guest is someone 'big', but no one is saying who.

Other guests, who I didn't see, have been Maria and Geena.

Geena also brought her boyfriend (now husband), who played slimeball Jez Quigley, an unexpected bonus.
