Eastenders’ Phil Mitchell to visit Cambridge

Will Tilbrook 12 January 2017

Famous for his antics on Albert Square in BBC soap opera Eastenders, for one night only the actor of Phil Mitchell will be coming to Cambridge next month to meet his fans at a clubbing night launch event.

The Clique Project is launching a new student night at the bar and club Revolution on 9 February, and it has announced that the special guest will be Steve McFadden, the actor known for portraying one half of the 'hard men' duo, the Mitchell brothers.

The Clique Project website describes McFadden as a "top TV star, sea life centre enthusiast, and all round living legend" and says he will be meeting and greeting with fans.

McFadden trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) from 1984 to 1987 before going on to be cast in Eastenders three years later. His character has had storylines involving Mitchell's struggle with alcoholism, drug abuse, and more recently being shot by his ex-girlfriend.

Tickets for the event are being sold online.
