Police cadets help out at The Mall’s Olly Murs concert

South Gloucestershire Volunteer Police Cadets at The Mall

Police worked with The Mall at Cribbs Causeway to make sure an open-air concert for more than 6,000 people was a success.

The Olly Murs concert to mark the Christmas lights being switched on at the South Gloucestershire shopping complex was the first ever hosted at the venue.

A police operation was put into place to ensure the safety of the thousands of mainly young fans who came to the event, and minimise disruption for local people and businesses.

Chief Inspector Peter Warren, in charge of policing at the event, said:

“This was a great opportunity for officers to engage with young people, and obviously any event with that number of people attending requires the support of emergency services. The Mall and the promoters worked together with the police and the event was carefully planned with appropriate private security in place.”

“A few people in the audience needed attention from the medics on standby after feeling faint, but we did not experience any crime, disorder or traffic problems.”

“The event was also the first public duty for a group of the Avon and Somerset Volunteer Police Cadets, who used the opportunity to hand out street safety leaflets to shoppers and concert-goers.”

Thousands watch X Factor star switch on Christmas lights

Olly Murs switches on the Christmas lights at The Mall

Around 7,000 fans from all over the South West turned out to watch Olly Murs at The Mall’s Christmas Lights Switch On and Concert last night (Thursday 10th November).

The X Factor star treated the thousands of screaming fans to a special live performance after switching on the Christmas Lights at The Mall’s exclusive event. It was the first time that Olly Murs had performed his new single “Dance With Me Tonight” which is due to be released on 20th November, at a concert venue.

Olly said:

“It was great to get on stage and perform my new single.”

“The response I got from the crowd was incredible. My new single went down really well and it was great to get everybody in the Christmas spirit!”

Heart Breakfast presenters Bush, Troy and Paulina compered the event which officially opened The Mall’s Winter Wonderland and launched late night shopping until 10pm at The Mall.

After a stunning performance from support band Young Kato, the mischievous trio encouraged the crowd to teach Essex boy Olly Murs a bit of ‘Brizzle’ to help him understand his fans during his trip to the South West. The three presenters even got him to try to break a record for the most ‘keepy uppies’ with a football on stage.
