Emmerdale actor to attend Isle of Wight Walking Festival

An event being held on the Isle of Wight this summer is to feature one of the country's best-loved actors as a celebrity guest.

Chris Chittell, who has played Eric Pollard in Yorkshire-based soap opera Emmerdale for 25 years, will be entertaining walkers and visitors alike as part of a stage show for the 2011 Isle of Wight Walking Festival.

Following in the footsteps of famous faces such as Brian Blessed and Janet Street-Porter, who have both taken part in the event in previous years, An Evening with Chris Chittell, Emmerdale's Eric Pollard will take place at Medina Theatre in Newport on May 13th 2011.

George Brown, Isle of Wight Council Cabinet Member for the economy, tourism, leisure and planning, stated that the Isle of Wight Walking Festival is an "ideal" introduction to the island.

"You can enjoy the best of the island and take note of where you go, perhaps for a return visit," he said.
