Saturday 24th November, King William Street, 4.30pm to 6.30pm

Blackburn’s Christmas lights will be switched on this year by the town’s very own singing sensation Grace Davies.

Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council in partnership with Blackburn BID and The Mall have organised this year’s jam-packed festive programme, with Grace set to take centre stage.

The 21-year-old songstress first won local hearts when she made it to the X Factor finals last year. Since then the singing sensation has signed-up to Simon Cowell’s record label SYCO Music and has gone on to gain fans worldwide with her original songs and rich smoky tone.

She’s currently penning her new album in between recording sessions and shows but has managed to take a little time out from her busy schedule to perform live in her home town next Saturday.

The free event hosted by Rock FM’s Steve and Janine, kicks off on King William Street, Saturday 24th November at 4.30pm.

Live music and performances are set to keep the whole family entertained until 6.30pm when the Christmas lights will be switch on, accompanied by a festive fireworks display to mark the official start of this year’s festive celebrations.
