The original set for the series was Benwell Towers, the original home of the Bishop of Newcastle. I look forward to its return and to new generations being inspired and celebrated; and great for our region too @antanddec 🙌🙏 https://t.co/3PYkkkwHQf— Bishop of Newcastle (@BishopNewcastle) July 4, 2023
If they're bringing back Byker Grove, they'll need to get past these gates first.— Alex Love (@thisalexlove) July 4, 2023
Taken in October 2017, the day after a gig in Newcastle. I was too hungover to drive, so decided to walk 2.5 miles to find the actual Grove.
Took this pic, then walked back. Definitely Worth it pic.twitter.com/0kN8k7bHnC
I'm delighted that Byker Grove, one of the North East’s greatest exports, will be returning to our screens soon.— Bridget Phillipson (@bphillipsonMP) July 4, 2023
Massive credit to the team at @Fulwell73 for all they are doing to harness the massive potential of our region, in front of and behind the camera. https://t.co/yHt66gF4UW
