X Factor star set for switch-on of Keighley lights
8:00am Saturday 2nd November 2013 in News
Keighley’s Christmas lights switch-on next month is set to be one of the biggest and brightest yet.
A star performer from the hit TV show the X Factor will entertain the crowds and help flick the switch.
And there will be a host of other attractions across the town centre. The line-up at the November 24 extravaganza will include teenage singer-songwriter Declan Vink, winner of the Airedale Unsigned talent contest staged by the Airedale Shopping Centre in the summer.
Activities will take place in the Airedale Centre, Church Green and Royal Arcade. Events will begin at about 11am and the switch-on will take place at 4.30pm.
Steve Seymour, Airedale Centre manager, said: “For the past two years we have provided an X Factor star and they have been extremely popular. At the moment we are negotiating so don’t know yet who it will be.”
