Residents urged to show their support for Brierley Hill

An event is being held to celebrate Brierley Hill and its heritage and culture in the town centre this weekend.

The 'Hug Your H!' street event will take place on Saturday March 5 and is organised by Brierley Hill Cultural Consortium and Community Forum in conjunction with Dudley Council and Brierley Hill Market.

The centrepiece will take place at Marsh Park at 1.30pm, when members of the public will be invited to show their support for the High Street by taking part in the formation of a giant love heart which will be captured by aerial drone photography. Alongside that, there will be family activities running from 10am to 3pm at the Moor Centre, including family craft workshops, circus performers and more.

The Midland Fretted Orchestra will perform on the green in front of Brierley Hill Civic from 11am to 12 noon, while there will be a vintage fair at Arena Combat Archery along Little Cottage Street from 10am to 3pm.

And a ‘Blinder of a Day’ is promised at Brierley Hill Market, where from 10am to 3pm there will be a Peaky Blinders themed event with vintage singer Claire Louise, tap dancing by Katie Lewis and the Supreme Showgirls. Councillor Simon Phipps, cabinet member for regeneration and enterprise, said:

"This promises to be a fantastic free event offering lots of fun for the whole family. The High Street is very much at the heart of our communities and this event has been designed to make that very point.

"I would urge people to go along and support Brierley Hill Community Forum, Brierley Hill Market and the various community groups who work really hard to promote and celebrate Brierley Hill town centre and its community.
