Best Buy Store Opens in Brierley Hill

Best Buy’s third UK store at Merry Hill in Brierley Hill is all set to save customers hundreds of pounds on technology.

Best Buy, a leading consumer electronics retailer, opened its doors at 9am on Friday 25th June at the Merry Hill Centre, Brierley Hill. The opening weekend offered customers amazing deals on the latest technology products to keep them connected and entertained all the way through the summer. Offers ran throughout the weekend, allowing customers to take advantage of massive savings of up to 70% off.

Carl Taylor, General Manager, Best Buy Merry Hill said the team were very excited about officially opening the store to the local community in Merry Hill and its surrounding areas. Their team of Blueshirts worked hard to complete their nine week Blueshirt Training Academy to ensure customers get the right products and advice.

O2 Tickets Offer
Best Buy is sponsoring The O2, the world’s most popular music venue. As a result, Best Buy customers will enjoy upgrade opportunities and access to VIP tickets, as well as exclusive gigs at Indigo2 and other AEG Live events. Headlined by Ellie Goulding, the first exclusive gig took place on 5 July 2010 with 1,225 pairs of free tickets given away by Best Buy. Customers who spent over £30 on products in store were given a unique reference code and were eligible for a pair of free tickets to the show and entry to the after-party.
Home Entertainment
The UK weather is never predictable, but Best Buy has rainy days at home covered with a wide range of TVs and a choice of sizes to suit every room: from 19” TV and DVD combinations to 32”, 37”, 42” options and up. 3D is the hot topic of the moment in the technology world and Samsung, LG, Panasonic and Sony are all currently launching their 3D TV ranges, allowing customers to not only watch the HD content they already enjoy, but also enjoy the latest 3D entertainment. Check out our great display of 3D TVs in store. There are also some terrific home theatre systems from LG, Philips and Onkyo, offering something for everyone. Customers can also pick up from a great selection of Blu-ray chart movie titles.
Apple iPhone 4 arrives at Best Buy UK
Offering the latest in top technology, Best Buy is stocking the highly anticipated Apple iPhone 4, available in store on all the major iPhone networks. With HD video recording and the highest mobile phone screen resolution ever seen on a phone, this is an exciting new release. Walk out working with the iPhone 4 since we’ll set it all up so that it’s ready to use as soon as you leave the store. Or, if you want to know all about your new phone’s features, sign up for an iPhone 4 tutorial and for just £14.99 learn all about the handset from a Geek Squad Agent– apps, email, video calling and much more.
Summer Fun
Best Buy can keep you connected whether you are planning a camping trip, a BBQ with your family, or a long weekend at a music festival with friends. The solar Freeloader Pro Charger allows you to charge your mobile phone, or digital camera when you don’t have access to a normal power supply. You can also capture those summer moments with a range of digital cameras.

Sadly, summer will be gone before we know it and thousands of people will be heading back to school and off to college or university. Best Buy is helping students get ahead with offers on the latest laptops and printers.

Wordsley School rated “good” by Ofsted (From Stourbridge News)

THE Wordsley School is celebrating after being rated “good” by Ofsted.

Previously ranked “satisfactory in 2006, the Brierley Hill Road school was visited by inspectors last month.

They noted many outstanding features and praised the school as “rapidly improving” and “very inclusive” and praising its care, guidance and support as well as its engagement with parents, the behaviour of pupils and how the schoool promotes equality and tackles discrimination.

Headteacher Mike Lambert, whose vision and leadership was also complimented, said: “The entire report is a celebration of what can be achieved when all within a school community work together with a deep felt conviction that we can make a difference to our young people, so they too can pursue their dream.

“This is a belting report, we can go forward with confidence and a renewed self belief that will ensure we become universally accepted as an outstanding school.”

N-Dubz visit Merry Hill

Popular hip hop trio N-Dubz, made up of Dappy, Tulisa and Fazer stopped off at Waterstones in Merry Hill in May.

Hundreds of fans queued for hours to get their book‘Against All Odds – From Street Life to Chart Life’ signed by their idols.

Kelly Reed, Marketing Manager at Merry Hill, said: “We knew it was going to be a big turnout because they are so popular, but even we were taken aback by the crowds. We’ve had some big names at Merry Hill over the years, but N-Dubz seemed to be as popular as anyone else we have seen recently. “It’s great they took the time out to meet fans and there were a lot of happy faces coming away from Waterstones.”

Brierley Hill Musical Theatre BHMTC's Notes

Men Wanted for the Full Monty!!!Share

Sunday at 22:15

Brierley Hill Musical Theatre Company (BHMTC) are seeking two leading Male performers to play the parts of Jerry Lukowski and Noah (Horse) Simmons in the multi award winning musical, The Full Monty. The musical is based on the 1997 Oscar-nominated film about unemployed steel workers who form a male striptease act to raise money. Jerry, (played by Robert Carlyle in the hit movie) is one of the redundant steel workers who, in desperation, considers going ‘the full monty’ in order to raise money to regain custody of his son. Jerry is a high tenor part ideally played by an actor in his 30’s. The part of horse is ideally played by a mature black man; the character dances the funky chicken whist singing his debut song ‘big black man’. The company will perform this hit show at Brierley Hill Civic hall in October, using the set and scenery as used on the professional West End production!

BHMTC would also like to hear from talented male and female performers to audition to join the chorus.

Anyone interested should contact the producer Chris Psaras on 07817 478292 or email full details can be found on or find us on Facebook.
