Plans have been unveiled for a series of Christmas events in Burntwood.
A lights switch on will take place in Boney Hay at 6pm on 25th November, before two larger events during the festive season.
The Chasetown Christmas event takes starts at 6pm on 27th November and will see the High Street closed to traffic for the evening while fair rides and a Christmas market taking place.
Entertainment will be provided by the local bands from Erasmus Darwin Academy and the local scout group, as well as a choir from St Joseph and St Teresa RC Primary School.
Cllr Darren Ennis, chair of the community and partnerships committee at Burntwood Town Council, said: “This event is being run by the businesses of Chasetown with the support of the council.
“For the last six months they have met every week to pull together an event that’s reminiscent of the sort of Christmas fun Chasetown saw 20 years ago.
“It’s brilliant to see these businesses coming together to create a fabulous event.”
“An evening of fun and laughter – and a carol or two”
Sankeys Corner will also be the scene of festive fun when the town’s Christmas Festival takes place from 4pm on 30th November.
Cllr Ennis added: “We have been working with local churches and Burntwood Library to offer an evening of fun and laughter – and a carol or two.
“The event offers residents the chance to come down and see Santa with the kids, with free fairground rides, a Christmas Fayre and train and the local scout band playing.
“With the support of businesses at Sankeys Corner, it’s also a great chance to see what the area has to offer.
“Every year this event grows and grows, with footfall ever-increasing, so we are looking forward to another amazing Burntwood Christmas Festival.”
