are pleased to announce that former Arborfield resident and star of "X-Factor" Series 6, Danyl Johnson, will be returning to the village as our guest of honour, to formally open our 2019 event.
He now hosts his own Wednesday night Radio Show on BBC Radio Berkshire, and is delighted to have the opportunity be involved in such an important community event.
Danyl first came to fame when he appeared in The X Factor in 2009, with his initial appearance blowing away the judges,
Simon Cowell exclaimed it was "the best first audition I have ever heard", and he made it through to the live shows, eventually finishing in fourth place, just behind Joe McElderry, Olly Murs and Stacey Solomon.
More recently, he was one of the finalists to represent the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017.
"Early Bird" tickets are now available to purchase in advance (until 23:30 on Sunday 26th May 2019 - subject to availability). Once the advance sales are complete, tickets will only be available at the full price on the day (again, subject to availability).
Tickets can be obtained either directly from the Branch Committee if you are local to Arborfield and can collect (please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your purchase), or
online, through (* online purchases are subject to an additional booking fee charged by for their services).
