YOUNG people will be invited to a free concert.

Blackburn's old Apollo Theatre, now half way through the development that will see it become The Exchange, will open its door for the fist time since it closed as a picture house 11 years ago.

‘Uprising', a free-to-attend music event featuring a performance by Christian band TWELVE24 will take place on April 6.

Young people aged between 11 and 18 years old will be welcome at the event, where the Christmas message will be shared in a language that is relevant o young people and today's society.

There will also be a concessions stall with refreshments, there will also be a prayer wall for young people to attach prayer-requests and a “chill-out” area for advice and prayer.
