Interested in classic Grange Hill? Want to find out more about what went on behind the scenes? Want to meet cast members? Want to explore the school itself? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you need to attend the Grange Hill Memories 2 event on May 22nd 2016!
Following on from 2014’s hugely successful event, the team have gone one better for this year’s reunion event.
Firstly, the event is actually taking place at Grange Hill itself, or to be exact Fulham Preparatory School; the actual school where Grange Hill was filmed between 1981-85. Attendees will be given a guided tour of the site and local area by Erkan “Roland” Mustafa as he remembers what it is like to be back at the school over 30 years later!
Alongside this, the day will consist of a series of on-stage panel interviews, autograph opportunities and photo sessions with the cast members themselves. Confirmed guests so far include; George Armstrong (Alan Humphries s1-5), Alison Bettles (Fay Lucas s5-10), Gwyneth Powell (Mrs McCluskey s4-13), Robert Craig-Morgan (Justin Bennett s1-5), Paula Ann Bland (Claire Scott s4-8), Lisa York (Julie Marchant s5-10), Erkan Mustafa (Roland Browning s5-10), Lisa East (Christine Everson s4-6), Joann Boakes (Anita Unsworth s3-6), Vincent Matthews (Jeremy Irvine s6-7), Ian Congdon Lee (Ted Fisk s11-15), Karen Lewis (Miss Partridge s8-9), Rene Zagger (Mike Bentley s12-13) and Nicholas Donnelly (Mr Mackenzie s8-16). All tickets include two free autographs from each guest (excluding Paula Ann Bland) and more are available to purchase on the day. There will also be a selection of high quality glossy photos available which you can get signed – or why not just bring your Grange Hill DVDs or Annuals?
Having attended the original event in 2014, Grange Hill Gold can not recommend this event enough. Tickets are priced at £42 (£29 for Under 15s) and can be purchased by visiting the website here.
