Gigs next year include supporting The Voice of Reason, in Blackpool, a plus a show in Benidorm, Spain.

In addition, a photograph plaque featuring Our Trace is due to be installed at Cheslyn Hay Working Men's Club, Station Street, Cheslyn Hay, in Staffordshire.

Other attractions include Father Christmas grotto, a reindeer food trail, Beatdown dance studio, Pat Collins Fair, craft stalls, mulled wine and hot food.

Organiser Spencer Thrower, of Ant Event Management, says: "This year will be a scaled down show. It will be community and family themed. All the people on stage will be local or have local links.

"It will be great to see people come out and support this community effort. We are trying to do our best in Covid times. Next year we'll be running a bigger show."
