ST JAMES’ School, Lower Darwen, has announced that tickets for its annual ‘J-Factor’ talent show are now on sale.

A spokesman said: “The children have been working hard on their performances for months and this year are excited to perform at the Thwaites Theatre, Blackburn. Expect an extravaganza of song, dance and martial arts from the pupils of St James’ and a few surprises from the staff too.”

Tickets are £5 for an adult and £3 for a child, priced to cover the cost of hiring the theatre. Any profits made will be donated to charity.
