Singing star Olly Murs performed an intimate gig at Merry Hill on Sunday 25th September to launch a music spectacular.
The exclusive show, saw the X-Factor sensation sing a four-song set after hours, including his chart topping hits ‘ Please don’t let me go’ and ‘Heart skips a beat’ to 300 lucky listeners of BRMB, Beacon, Wyvern and Mercia Radio who successfully won tickets to the show.
The current Xtra-Factor presenter, who stopped off at the shopping centre last year to switch on the Christmas lights, was also joined by new girlband Parade, to launch this year’s Live 2011 pop concert which takes place at the LG Arena on November 26.
During the event, Pixie Lott was announced as the first act to appear at the concert, which last year saw the likes of The Script, Alexandra Burke, The Wanted, Example, McFly, James Blunt and Mark Ronson and Olly Murs perform.
More chart-toppers set to appear at the concert will be announced over the airwaves over the coming weeks.
Neighbours News is a non-profit voluntary organisation, formally constitued as a group since September 1999 on the Castle & Priory Ward in Dudley. We produce community newsletters for residents. As of 2004, we have expanded to other areas (most of which are in high deprivation).
We want to get a community newsletter for Brierley Hill circulating, because there is interest, however we need to find any potential funders and anyone who might be interested in sponsoring an edition. High Arcal School in Sedgley has sponsored an edition of the Oval & Tudor News in Upper Gornal, for example.
We remove the official language and put it in plain English for people to understand, keeping them informed about local issues, training and job opportunities, developments, town centre events, etc.
Our local distribution is carried out by community groups and the print group we use trains people with learning difficulties.
We are based on the Pensnett Trading Estate, having relocated offices, due to the demolition work being done on North Priory, where our former premises were in Pine Road.
