Reality show singing stars are to headline a free concert for Armed Forces Day in Preston.


Kevin Simm, who was victorious in this year’s The Voice, X Factor winner Matt Cardle and Britain’s Got Talent winner Jai McDowall are all to take to the stage.

Taking place on Saturday 25 June the show is part of a Familyfest on the Flag Market.

The stage used for Craig Charles and MistaJam’s DJ sets on the balcony of the Harris Museum is where the performers will be.

Supporting the main acts are Sam Callaghan, Tiger Heart, Janet Devlin, Hana Joy, Gabz and District 12.

Preston BID manager, Mark Whittle, said: “This is a stellar line-up for our family-friendly event and one that will hopefully attract a large crowd into Preston.

“Our headliner performers are all credible artists in their own right and have enjoyed the support of millions of people in their performing career and through television.

“It promises to be a great, free, day out with lots of interaction. At the same time, however, I hope those in attendance will also show their gratitude to the Armed Forces who do so much in protecting our country.”

The concert runs from 1pm to 4pm, with the Armed Forces Day itself starting at 10am.

Organisers say a Spitfire is due to do a flypast as part of the celebrations.
