Tony Warren Exhibition - More Details Announced

More details have been announced on the Tony Warren Exhibition in Salford.

The exhibition, Four Miles from Manchester: Tony Warren's Coronation Street will run at the Salford Museum & Art Gallery from Saturday 21 October 2017 to Sunday 3 July 2018

'Coronation Street is four miles in any one direction from the centre of Manchester. Emotionally, it's wherever you want it to be in your own heart', Tony Warren.

This exhibition tells the story of Tony Warren the Salford legend on his path to creating the biggest and longest running TV soap opera, Coronation Street; an innovation of its time, telling the stories of ordinary people on an ordinary street.

Coronation Street creator Tony Warren was born and grew up in Pendlebury. He absorbed the streets, people and sounds surrounding him. As a child Tony remembered visiting his grandmother's house, where he would sit under the table and listen to the speech patterns of his female relatives.

1950s Salford was full of terraced houses, cobbled streets and industrial sounds and sights; this scene is set by specially created paintings by local artist David Coulter.
