LOCAL acts are being sought to perform at Christmas light switch-ons across the borough.

Festive celebrations take place in Dudley on Saturday, November 23 and in Halesowen on November 16.

Stourbridge's Christmas lights will be switched on at an event on November 30 and Brierley Hill will be illuminated on November 29.

Each event includes a stage to showcase the talents of local people and council bosses are urging acts to apply to perform.

Councillor David Stanley, Mayor of Dudley, said: "We like to showcase local talent and it’s a great opportunity to perform in front of hundreds of people.

"So if you can sing or dance get in touch, whether you’re an individual or a group, we’d love to hear from you."

Anyone interested in taking part is asked to email jessica.haines@dudley.gov.uk.
