Coronation Street tour to stay open for another year?

In an interview with The Yorkshire Post today, the Director of Continuum, the group behind the Coronation Street tours, reveals a little surprise.

She talks about how popular the Coronation Street tour is with fans and says:

“Initially, we were only running the tour until the end of September or beginning of October. Watch this space. We had a budget of 150,000 visitors. We have currently sold over 263,000 tickets and we’ve still got July, August and September to go.

“I think we will probably surpass 300,000 visitors in just six months. It would be foolish of us not to respond to popular demand, and popular pressure to keep it open. However attractive it might be financially to keep it open, it has to be led by what people want. The people in Manchester are saying, ‘What a shame. Why can’t it stay open for a little longer at least?’

“So my secret mission is to try and keep it open for another year.”
