Coronation Street star launches Performing Arts week at The Manchester College

The Manchester College welcomed Coronation Street star and former student Brooke Vincent back to its Shena Simon campus today (Monday 3 June), to launch its week-long campaign focussing on the performing arts industry and the importance of the arts in education.

Brooke, who plays Sophie Webster in the long running soap opera, studied acting at the College. She joined current students for a question and answer session when she provided advice, along with her tips for starting out in the industry.

She said: ‘It’s amazing to be back at The Manchester College’s Shena Simon campus and to have the opportunity to meet all the new, up and coming young performers. I’ve got a lot of fond memories from my time here and as a former performing arts student at the College, I would urge young people to come along and find out what is on offer. Studying for a career in performing arts has many benefits and opens up a lot of pathways within the industry, from acting to working behind the scenes, there are so many options open to you.’
