Take a tour with Curly

Kevin Kennedy, who played Curly Watts for twenty years, is making a series of special appearances throughout July, exclusively at Coronation Street the Tour.

For a chance to meet and have your picture taken with the former Coronation Street star, plan your visit for the following times:

  • Thursday 3rd July between 4pm and 6pm
  • Thursday 10th July between 4pm and 6pm
  • Thursday 17th July between 4pm and 6pm
  • Thursday 24th July between 7 and 9pm

Coronation Street was, and still is, a huge part of my life and I have so many fond memories of my time on the old Granada set. It’s great that the site is now open for visitors to see behind the scenes of where I spent so many happy years and I can’t wait to see their reactions when they step on to the cobbles for the very first time!

Tickets for the attraction have been in great demand since opening on April 5th, with over 100,000 visitors already flocking to the old filming site.

Consequently, additional capacity has now been released to accommodate the series of special appearances.
