Did you know that many of Coronation Street’s best loved stars have also appeared in Carry On films?

If you did, why not test your knowledge of the Granada TV soap and the classic comedy movie series in our Saturday nostalgia quiz?

It’s fun for everyone while so many of us are staying at home through the coronavirus lockdown.

Many of the questions in our quizzes come from Clive Hardy’s brilliant Around Manchester in the 1950s, 60s and 70s books. They’re packed with unmissable pictures from the M.E.N. archive.

The books are on sale now for £14.99 including postage and packing. Just go to inostalgia.co.uk or ring 01928 503777 to place your order.

We hope the quiz brings back some happy memories. If you’d like to share them, please write to the M.E.N. or inostalgia.co.uk. We’d love to hear from you.
