With the festive season approaching, people are reminded to be aware of the key warning signs of child sexual exploitation (CSE). The see me, hear me partnership, led by West Midlands Police and councils across the West Midlands, is highlighting the signs of this hidden crime in the run up to Christmas, to help people identify concerns and get help.
From December 2019 the venue becomes the Walsall Arena and Arts Centre. The change is partly due to the increasing popularity of the Centre's state -of-the-art A3 Arena, which in a few short years has gained a big following with both artists and audiences. Top draw comedians Chris Ramsey, Omid Djalili and Jenny Eclair have already performed there and it doesn’t stop with laughter either. Timeless folk legends ‘Fairport Convention’ and vintage Soul sensations 'The Drifters' have also graced its stage.
