Darius Campbell says he is looking forward to this year’s Crewe Carnival (Saturday, August 28).
The Popstar to Operastar winner is the headline act at this year’s much anticipated event.
Speaking to Cheshire East Council earlier this week, Darius said: “I’m really looking forward to coming to Crewe for this year’s Carnival. I’m sure it’s going to be a great event and can’t wait to see everyone there.”

The Carnival will be officially opened by Crewe Mayor, Councillor Jacquie Weatherill. Cheshire’s Silk 106.9 Breakfast Show presenter, Andy Bailey, will host this year’s show together with Paul Senior from CAT Radio.
Cheshire East Councillor Andrew Knowles, Cabinet member with responsibility for health and wellbeing, said: “There’s so much going on at this year’s Carnival – its set to be a fun-packed day for everyone. More than 500 tickets have already been handed out with plenty more available so don’t miss out.
“I would like to thank, in advance, all the acts and volunteers who are taking part. Such a large-scale event would not be possible without their help and enthusiasm.”
Cheshire East Councillor and Mayor of Crewe, Jacquie Weatherill, added:
