Popstar Diana Vickers is to perform in a concert at the official opening of a music centre at her former school.

The Huncoat singer, who was a semi-finalist on The X Factor, is to attend the official opening of the centre at Westholme School in Blackburn next month.

Diana, 21, will be performing alongside some of the school’s current singers and songwriters.

Vivien Shaw, marketing officer at the school, said everyone was looking forward to welcoming Diana.

She said: “Diana spent many hours in the Westholme Music Centre’s practice rooms composing songs for her GCSE Music and we are thrilled that she has found time to return to her old school to help open our Music Centre extension and to take part in a concert. Diana was definitely no stranger to the Westholme stage, always taking part in the productions and concerts in school.”

Diana appeared on the TV talent show in 2008.

Her debut single Once was released in 2009 and reached number one as did her first album Songs from the Tainted Cherry Tree.

She starred in a revival of Little Voice in London’s West End in 2009.

Her latest ventures have included designing a fashion label called Dee V and creating a make up line for Collection 2000.

Last year she began filming The Perfect Wave alongside Clint Eastwood’s son Scott.

Diana has also been recording material for an untitled second album which could be released later this year.

The concert is on Tuesday, March 5 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £15, concessions £10 and are available from the Westholme box office on 01254 506073.
