ANYONE who needs help getting in the festive spirit are being invited to special pre-Christmas events in Blackheath.

St Paul’s Church will have ‘The Sounds of Christmas’ wrapped up and ready for all this December.

The first, on Saturday, December 2, will see the Dudley Salvation Army band and Slick 6 vocal group take to the stage at the Long Lane church, from 7pm.

Audience members will be treated to music and song to suit everyone's taste, including seasonal favourites to sing along with.

The second event, a ‘Coffee and Carols’ concert, will once again light up St Paul’s Church, this time from 10am until noon on Saturday, December 9.

Request any of your favourite carols and then sit back and enjoy while Su plays it at the piano – or feel free to sing along!

Both events offer free admission and refreshments.
