Britain’s Got Talent finalist Gabz Gardiner and Nadeem Leigh from The Voice will both be taking to the stage in the town centre on November 28.

The Nobel School student shot to fame on the ITV talent show in June, and has since reached number six in the UK singles chart with Lighters (The One).

Nadeem, who grew up in the town and went to The John Henry Newman School, appeared on BBC’s The Voice in April and May, making it through the blind audition before being knocked out in the second round.
