Peppa Pig brings thousands to Blackburn

22nd November 2011

Categories: Town Centre News

THOUSANDS of people packed into Blackburn town centre last night as the town’s Christmas lights were switched on. A spectacular firework display followed children’s TV character Peppa Pig doing the honours in King William Street.

Children were delighted with Peppa’s antics as she did a special dance for her Blackburn fans. Families waving Peppa Pig balloons and banners who had crowded outside Blackburn Town Hall to see the children’s television star, greeted her with deafening cheers.

Waiting guests were then treated to a host of acts from other guest appearances including Preston four-piece boy band Juice and Britain's got Talent star Steven Hall.

This year's switch on, organised by Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council in partnership with The Mall Blackburn and The Bee radio, also launched the town’s late night shopping.
