Councillor Stephanie Brookfield said:
I am a big X Factor fan and I am thrilled to welcome both Max Stone and Josh Daniels to Darwen. Max is a fantastic performer and Josh really captured the nation’s hearts with his audition song. I hope everyone will give them a really warm welcome. The Darwen Christmas Lights switch on is a great event and it is always a great start to the festive season for people.”
