X Factor stars will light up Merry Hill
2:00pm Monday 28th October 2013 in News
CROWDS gathering at this year’s Christmas lights switch-on at Merry Hill will be will treated to performances from two acts who have the X Factor.
Boy band Union J and Rylan Clark, who found fame on the talent show, have been announced as the headline acts for the highly-anticipated event at the Brierley Hill shopping centre on Friday November 15.
Local up-and-coming band R3 Action and singer Lauren Wright will warm up the crowds from 5pm and Free Radio will keep everyone entertained in between performances with games and giveaways.
A colourful fireworks display will finish the night off with a bang at 7pm.
Kelly Reed, the centre’s senior marketing manager, said: “We’re very excited for what is always one of the biggest events on the centre’s calendar. With the festive season fast approaching, there’s been lots of talk about who’ll be appearing at the big switch on, and we’re sure the announcement won’t disappoint.
“With such phenomenally popular acts, the night is guaranteed to be a hit. We’ll be holding the event outside in the car park again, which means room for plenty more people, and of course, a more festive feel.”
Tickets, which are available from the centre’s concierge desk, cost £1 each.
All proceeds will go to the Harry Moseley charity Help Harry Help Others.
