Performers in Lichfield and Burntwood are being invited to showcase their talents at an awards ceremony to honour the work of firefighters.

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service’s MORE Awards tacke place at the County Showground in Stafford on March 7.

Last year’s event saw a performance by Fusion – the winner’s of Burton’s Got Talent – and now other acts are being invited to put their names in the hat this time around.

Events manager Jude Russell said: “We want to involve the community as much as we can in this event, so we’re interested to hear from any community-based entertainers who would like to perform on the evening.

“They don’t need to be singers as we’re not limiting any performances to singing only – we’ve had a dance troupe in past years and will consider any genre.

“We’re interested to hear from anyone who thinks they can put on a short entertaining performance for around 200 people.”

Anyone who is interested can contact Jude on 01785 898579 or email
