Corrie's Claire and Ashley Peacock reunited in LGBTQ film

Ex-Coronation Street couple Steven Arnold (Ashley Peacock) and Julia Haworth (Claire Peacock) will be starring together in a new film based on an award-wining LGBTQ play Once A Year on Blackpool Sands.

Once A Year on Blackpool Sands is about the real-life illegal love affair between two Yorkshire miners. Last year it won the Canal Street Online Pick of the Fringe award at the GMFringe awards last year. 

Set in Blackpool 1953, before homosexuality was legal in the UK, this real-life gritty Northern LGBTQ comedy focuses Eddy and Tommy, as they head to Blackpool for their annual wakes week holiday.

Writer Karlton met the real-life Eddy and Tommy in a bar in Greece 30 years ago and heard their powerful, enthralling, inspirational, and funny, true story.

Greater Manchester Fringe 1-31 July 2019 is an open access arts festival. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 1 May. For more details visit
