Sedgley prepares for first Christmas lights switch-on as motorists warned over road closures
Sedgley will have its first ever Christmas lights switch-on, with motorists warned of delays amid road closures.
The big switch-on will take place on December 3 at 6pm. The High Street will be narrowed to traffic with a single lane system operating.
Dean Street will be closed off and Ettymore Road will be partially closed to accommodate market stalls.
There will be a stage for entertainment hosted by Black Country Radio. The event will run from 4pm to 7pm.
A Christmas tree on Sedgley Bullring and the lights through the town centre will be switched on for the main event.
Sedgley councillor Michael Evans said: “I think it is a great event for Sedgley.”
Organiser Shaun Keasey added: “It is a testament to the effort of all involved that we have managed to close the town centre whilst ensuring buses and traffic can continue to flow.”
