Singer and actor Darius Campbell

Darius is an acclaimed actor; having featured in the West End productions of Chicago, Guys and Dolls and Gone With The Wind as well as a role in this year’s production of Carmen at The O2 Arena in London.

In February of this year, Darius won much public affection with his powerful and emotive performances in the ITV show Popstar to Operastar in which the 29 year old wowed the audience and judges with his renditions of ‘Nessun Dorma’ and ‘The Impossible Dream’.

This year’s Crewe Carnival, organised by Cheshire East Council’s Outdoor Events Team and the Friends of Queens Park will be a free, ticketed event. Darius will perform as part of a full day’s entertainment which will include performances from local community groups and other acts to be announced.

Tickets will be available from Crewe Lyceum Theatre from Monday, August 2.

Cheshire East Councillor, Andrew Knowles, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Health and Wellbeing, said:

“This is a fantastic coup for all those who are organising this year’s Carnival. Darius is a popular and versatile performer with lots to offer. His success in Popstar to Operastar is testament to his all-round appeal.

“This year’s Carnival is something I am very much looking forward to; it is a highlight of Crewe’s social calendar, with a long history in the town.”

Cheshire East Council’s Outdoor Events Manager, Andrew Latham, added:

“Darius fits the bill perfectly; he has great talent and personality and is sure to be great entertainment on the night.

“There’s a lot to look forward to at this year’s Crewe Carnival and the day will be filled with lots of local talent too. It’s not too late for local community groups and businesses to get involved in this year’s Carnival, just contact me on 01270 537 846.”
