The cast and crew of Byker Grove are marking 25 years since the show first hit our screens with a special celebration at the Tyneside Cinema on Friday November 7 and we are giving you the chance to be there.
It’s staggering to think that the show which gave us such iconic moments as PJ getting blinded during a paint-ball match, Jemma Dobson being electrocuted and the Grove’s surrogate dad Geoff dying in a gas explosion was first broadcast a quarter of a century ago.
The show led to great things for the likes of Ant and Dec, Jill Halfpenny, Charlie Hunnam and Andrew Hayden-Smith, with many of its former stars expected to attend Byker Grove: All Grown Up? at the Tyneside next week along with producers Matthew Robinson and Ed Pugh.
For your chance to win a pair of VIP tickets for the event, email your answer to the question below along with your name, age, address and contact telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
