Burnley will be illuminated by a host of local talent when the switch is thrown for this year’s annual festive lights switch-on.

The Christmas lights switch-on is taking place on Sunday, November 24th, in the town centre. There will be a lineup of mouth-watering live acts including bluesy rock four-piece The Rushe, Jess McGlinchey, a 15-year-old singer from Burnley who made it to the finals of Burnley’s Got Talent and the Flat Cappers, a quirky trio singing the songs of Frank, Sammy and Dean but with a Lancashire twist.

Jonjo Kerr, who made it to the live finals of X-Factor series 8, will also be making an appearance along with the KLF dance troop.
