Ken Barlow to celebrate 50 years on Coronation Street

William Roache will take centre stage in a special production to mark his 50 years as Coronation Street’s Ken Barlow.

A special tribute night for the veteran actor, who has appeared in nearly 4,000 episodes of the soap, will be held in Bolton later this year.

A host of star guests are expeted to attend the event at the Reebok Stadium on Friday September 24. Paul Wild, chairman of the Bolton branch of organisers the Variety Club, said:

“This event provides a unique opportunity to honour a much-loved actor who has made his character such an important part of British life.

“It will be a very exciting night, and not just for the fans of Coronation Street. There will be plenty of surprises – William Roache counts people like Cliff Richard, Cilla Black and Prince Charles among his friends and acquaintances, and many people want to pay tribute to both his longevity and talent.”

I think that longevity in the original TV 'soap' is something of a milestone. I grew up in an area of Manchester, not unlike that portrayed in Coronation Street, though the last episode I watched was probably something like 15 years ago. A lot of nationally (UK) recognised characters have come and gone in the last 50 years.
