Coronation Street exhibition to close

Tucked away in a corner of the Daisy Nook garden centre just outside of Manchester for the last three years has been a wonderful Coronation Street exhibition. 

It's run by Mark Llewellin, a friend of the Coronation Street Blog and a wonderful, knowledgeable man who knows his Corrie stuff. 

Well, if you haven't been to see the exhibition at Daisy Nook, you'd better go quickly. It's closing down, Mark tells us.

The exhibition will close on October 3. All exhibits are going to a new home. Mark will do a free talk about Coronation Street on December 9 at 7pm, using some of the exhibits.  We'll bring you further details on this talk as soon as we have them.

Want to know what you'll see there? Read our blogger Tvor's review of it here.
In a nutshell - is it worth visiting?

Yes. Yes. Yes.

Aw shame. Here's hoping Mark opens it up somewhere that the public can still see it. It's a fantastic little exhibit!

I agree Tvor, I make a point of dropping by each time I am in the area, such a shame it is closing. He has some wonderful original pieces out there, like a table and chairs once sat upon by Ena Sharples and her cronies in the Snug, and the blazer worn by Alec Gilroy when he was in charge of Sunliners Travel Agency. Daisy Nook won't be the same without the Corrie Corner, that's for sure. That being said though, if you like garden centres, Daisy Nook is one of the best, I could spend a flippin' fortune in that place!
