The DownEast Streeters are very pleased to announce we are again working with Brian Martin and the British Isles Show in Toronto. Marc Baylis, better known to Corrie viewers as bad boy Rob Donovan, will be our guest in Halifax on Tuesday Nov. 12th. 2013 at the Westin Hotel, Halifax. This is an exclusive opportunity for only 300 lucky fans to participate in an intimate, up close and personal event at a great price. Details on our "Evening With" Page. There are not many tickets left, so act now!
We are also excited to announce that our event will be hosted by Dawn Sloane, a former HRM Councillor and avid Coronation Street fan.
The date for the 66th Halifax Ping at the Parkside Pub is Sunday, January 19, 2014. See our Ping Page for more details.
The Downeast Streeters was on screen in Corrie Crazy, which aired on CBC on December 9, 2010 in conjunction with Coronation Street's 50th anniversary. They filmed our summer ping on July 18th including some chats with some of the committee members and some of the ping attendees. We got a couple of minutes' screen time when all was said and done. In addition, two of our Committee members, Diane and Mark were filmed for other segments in the documentary, Diane (and friends) blogged about her experience here and Mark's description of his day with the film crew aboard the HMCS Fredricton is here. There are photos in our Gallery!
Welcome to the website for the DownEast Streeters, based in Halifax Regional Municipality, Nova Scotia, Canada. We are a non-profit society and our goal is twofold:
To work towards bringing a Coronation Street actor to the Halifax area
To organize regular fan get togethers, called "Pings".
