In Brierley Hill town centre, Christmas festivities start at 9am and will include live entertainment and funfair rides. There will be a performance of Sleeping Beauty at 11am in the market.

Father Christmas will switch the light's on at 5pm, and there is an opportunity to pop down to Carols on the Canal at Delph Nine Locks which starts at 5.30pm. Councillor Sue Greenaway, the Mayor of Dudley, said:

“With free pantomimes and live entertainment on stage, these events are bound to bring some festive cheer to the towns ahead of the big day.
