Colson Smith

We are overjoyed to announce that we have Colson Smith, otherwise known as Coronation street’s Craig Tinker, opening our craft and food festival on Saturday 25th August! The 19 year old star has become a much loved family favourite amongst Coronation street fans, and lucky festival goers will have the opportunity to meet the star and even get his autograph.

The star has lived in Yorkshire for most of his life, Colson attended Castleford High School and Pontefract New College, balancing his studies whilst working on the show. Colson made his Coronation street debut in 2011 aged just 12, and since then he has had many popular story-lines, currently being embroiled in a hard hitting story line to raise awareness of OCD.

Colson will open the festival at 12:30pm, and will be walking round the festival after. To make sure you have opportunity to meet him get your tickets here.
