Event Postponement:

Following the world premiere in Manchester of Street of Dreams, the new musical event celebrating Coronation Street that received standing ovations last week, Reckless Entertainment, the show’s producers, are now keen to revisit the production and further develop ideas for the UK tour.

As a result the existing dates have been re-arranged. New tour dates for Dublin, Belfast and Newcastle will be announced very soon.

The producers would like to apologise to those who have already bought a ticket for the original tour dates.
Discussions and preparations are currently under way in order to arrange the rescheduled dates and further announcements will be made at the earliest opportunity. In the meantime, tickets holders are asked to retain their tickets which will be valid for the new date.
All ticket holders will be contacted directly with latest information as we receive it.


Welcome to Coronation Street, as Britain’s legendary longest-running TV soap comes alive in an incredible new musical spectacular hosted by Paul O’Grady!

Street of Dreams brings together stars of the show, past and present, in a glorious all-singing, all-dancing celebration of its extraordinary history and unforgettable characters. Sit back and let host Paul O’Grady lead you down an amazing life-size reconstruction of the most famous street in the country, as cast members* such as William Roache (Ken Barlow) and Kevin Kennedy (Curly Watts) recreate their iconic roles before your very eyes, alongside a very special on-screen appearance by Julie Goodyear, the original Bet Lynch.

With big star guest appearances to be announced, unforgettable music and lyrics by Trisha Ward and a stunning stage design that will take your breath away, Street of Dreams is an absolutely must-see for any fan of Coronation Street. It may have been running on TV for over fifty years, but this in one episode you simply won’t want to miss.

X Factor winner and singing sensation Joe McElderry will make a guest performance in Street of Dreams – the live musical celebration of Coronation Street, when it reaches Newcastle. Speaking on his excitement at joining Street of Dreams Joe said:
"I'm such a huge fan of Coronation Street, it's been a huge part of my life since I was a child, so to be a part of this amazing musical homage is really exciting.  I can't wait to be stood on stage in my home town alongside the cast of Corrie singing this beautiful finale number. It's an honour."
