Coronation Street Trio Unite For Charity Lunch

Coronation Street’s leading ladies, past and present, will join forces for a charity fundraiser at the Lowry Hotel in Salford at midday on March 27, 2020 in aid of Beechwood Cancer Care.

Part of the charity’s 30th year celebrations, the ‘Loose Ladies’ charity lunch will see actresses Catherine Tyldesley, Katie McGlynn and Jennie McAlpine join Liz Taylor, party planner to the stars and founder of Manchester-based events company Taylor Lynn Corporation (, for an exclusive ‘on the sofa’ chat.

Reunited on stage, the trio will take part in a ‘Loose Women’ panel style discussion delving into their recent careers and covering all the behind the scenes gossip on what it’s like to be part of some of the UK’s most-watched and most-loved television programmes. 

Tickets for the event are on sale now, priced from £600 for a table of 10 to include lunch and £750 for a VIP table at the front.  Individual tickets are also available. Email or call 01614760384 to secure a place.

Beechwood Cancer Care is one of the North West’s leading providers of support for people who have been given a diagnosis of cancer and another life-limiting illness. The charity offers a range of services to help families and individuals living with cancer, including counselling, complementary therapies, and group therapy sessions. Linda Steggles, CEO of charity, said:

“Kicking off Beechwood’s 30th anniversary celebrations in style, this fabulous event is sure to provide a fantastic afternoon of entertainment for guests, whether they attend for business or pleasure.

“Our Loose Ladies lunch features delicious food in luxurious surroundings and gives guests the rare opportunity to get an inside look at the careers of three of the UK’s leading, award-winning female acting talents. It’s an event not to be missed and will help us to raise vital funds that will go straight to helping those in need.

“Beechwood is a lifeline for individuals that have a life-limiting illness, as well as families struggling to come to terms with the illness of a loved one. We couldn’t have helped the thousands of people we’ve engaged with over the last 30 years without the support of events like these, as well as individuals and companies who have given so generously.

“Over the course of 2020 we’ll be setting out an ambitious programme of fundraising and awareness building events to celebrate our 30th year and we’ll be engaging some of the UK’s best-known talents in aid of Beechwood Cancer Care.”

British television actress, Jennie McAlpine has played Fizz (Fiona) Brown in Coronation Street since 2001. She took a leave of absence in 2017 to head to jungle and face her fears (as well as a host of critters) in the terrifying trials of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. 

Amongst a string of accolades, actress Katie McGlynn scooped the top award of Best Serial Drama Performance at the National Television Awards in January, for her portrayal of Sinead Tinker on the long-running soap. After she exited the programme in December, she has set her sights on furthering her acting career stateside.

Katherine Tyldesley shot to fame in the role of Iris Moss in BBC drama Lilies and is best known as vivacious Eva Price in Coronation Street. Most recently she applied her talents to the dance floor, appearing in the seventeenth series of Strictly Come Dancing. She attends this event fresh from the recent Strictly Come Dancing Live tour where she unfortunately exited early when she broke her ankle.

The Loose Ladies fundraising event is being organised by the Taylor Lynn Corporation (on behalf of Beechwood Cancer Care – registered Charity Number: 1006015). TLC is one of the North West’s leading event management companies and is itself this year celebrating 25 years in business in 2020. Find out more at
