FAN FAVOURITES FLOCK TO FORMER FILMING STUDIOS FOR SERIES OF SPECIAL EMMERDALE EVENTS
An Evening With Bill Ward, Friday 7th July
An Evening With Sammy Winward, Friday 29th September
The Emmerdale Studio Experience has confirmed plans to bring back fan favourites, Bill Ward and Sammy Winward, for a series of special “Evening With” ticketed events at the Yorkshire based attraction.
Actor Bill Ward (played James Barton), whose character met his demise in the epic car crash scenes which aired last year, will appear at the Studio Experience on Burley Road in Leeds for one night only on Friday 7th July.
Show stalwart Sammy Winward (played Katie Sugden) will also make a welcome return to the place she called home for more than 13 years for an evening of reminiscing on Friday 29th September.
Guests are invited to arrive at the attraction for 6pm where they can enjoy a pre-bookable Yorkshire Supper in the café before embarking on a guided tour of the Studio Experience starting from 6.45pm. The tour will reveal the secrets, stories and some of the sets behind the much loved ITV programme. The pinnacle of the evening will culminate with excellent company in the famous surroundings of The Woolpack replica set where guests can pose for pictures, have a pint or a glass of wine and listen to the stars’ tales of their time on the show.
The announcement comes following the huge success of Kelvin Fletcher’s sold out return to his former stomping ground last month.
Addressing guests at the time Kelvin said: “It’s just so surreal. We filmed on this very studio floor for years, oh if walls could talk! We could easily be in the real thing right now.
“There’s a real studio buzz in the air, it’s so weird. This Woolpack set is so impressive and it’s great that fans of the show can now step behind the bar – talk about creating memories.”
Tickets, which are limited in numbers, for An Evening With Bill Ward and An Evening With Sammy Winward will go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 7 June and are available to book online at www.emmerdalestudioexperience.co.uk or by calling 01904 261 262.
