Albert Square Event Preview Shocker!

Published on October 6th 2005.


For ages now, us poor souls at Manchester Confidential have been stumbling across exciting-looking events mysteriously taking place in Albert Square, and then scrambling about afterwards for information, desperately seeking clues as to what strange phenomenon we had just witnessed.

Maybe the event organising pixies of Albert Square have been reading Manchester Confidential and pity us in our poor confused state. Or maybe they’ve splashed out and hired themselves a pixie publicist. Who knows. All that matters is that we have actually been told about an Albert Square event BEFORE IT TAKES PLACE!

Today, Albert Square will witness a star studded extravaganza as ITV celebrates its 50th birthday. From midday until 7pm, a huge screen will show extracts from favourite ITV shows from the past 50 years.

Catch extracts from vintage Coronation Street, Cracker, Prime Suspect, The Mrs Merton Show , The Grimleys, Brideshead Revisited, The Royle Family, Brass, The Forsyte Saga, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Cold Feet and Jewel in the Crown. Comedy from Peter Kay and music from the likes of Marc Bolan and David Bowie will round off the celebrations in true ITV Granada style.

Then at 6pm the red carpet will be rolled out to make way for the arrival of ITV Granada celebs arriving for a glittering VIP reception hosted by the Lord Mayor. The evening reception at the Great Hall is a celebration of ITV Granada's contribution to Manchester and the world of television.

So, now that you know what’s happening, don’t miss a rare opportunity to visit Albert Square safe in the knowledge that you know exactly what's going on!
