Shoppers enjoyed festive fun in Brierley Hill on Saturday 24 November when the town centre held its Christmas light switch on event.
The event ran from 1.30 to 4.30pm, and was delivered in conjunction with Birch-Bastock, which manages the Concord Market.
It included a number of free festive events, entertainment and activities for all the family and the Mayor of Dudley sang a festive favourite.
Shoppers took advantage of a winter fair at the former labour club building INSIGHT House on Pearson Street. Stalls sold fantastic Christmas crafts and gifts and people were able to get information and advice from community organisations and services.
At the Moor Centre there was stage entertainment from 1.30pm with performances from Wordsley School, The Bridgnorth Ukulele Band and Brierley Hill Music Theatre. Music and live entertainment also take place across the High Street, in the markets and in Asda throughout the day.
Staff from Dudley Council’s Active Travel team were on hand with advice and information about getting around Brierley Hill on foot, by bike and public transport. They handed out free backpacks, reflective stickers and information packs.
The Mayor of Dudley councillor Melvyn Mottram and Shane Birch-Bastock from Concord Market switched on the lights and Christmas tree at 4.30pm.
