A campaign to get the TV series The Brittas Empire back on television.
It was a wonderful day! Chris was immediately back in his Brittas role, even bringing his original whistle and opening the centre with an ‘Eeeexcellent’. He said it felt very surreal being back after twenty years.
The reunion came together because I was contacted by Toby White a business and fitness manager working at the center.
He wondered if, because I run social media pages for Chris Barrie, I could get him in touch with some of the cast members. This because the original building had been refurbished and he would love to have a few of the stars at the re-opening.
I decided to try one better and wondered if it could not be a reunion instead and tried to get in touch with all the actors of the show. All of them responded positively and were very keen to see their old colleagues again and loved the idea of a big reunion
It was a wonderful event that was well received by fans and the cast and I have remained in touch to work on various events, including the 2021 reunion, to #BringBackBrittas.
