4:17pm Tuesday 4th September 2012 in News
THE annual 1940s Day in Darwen town centre was a ‘brilliant day’, according to the town council mayor.
Coun Eileen Entwistle was at the event, which saw a number of entertainers, including singers Linda Dee and Ricki Lee, perform wartime hits while many people came in fancy dress.
Hundreds descended on the Market Square for the event, with people coming from out of town to enjoy the celebrations. Coun Entwistle said: “It was a brilliant day, thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. It was quite emotional with all the old songs and older people.
“Thanks must go to the people who organised this event. I hope they do another.”
