WIN VIP passes to ELO legend Jeff Lynne’s Walk Of Stars party this week.
That’s the pop prize offer from the Sunday Mercury and Birmingham Mail today.
Brummie star Jeff is coming home to receive a star on the Broad Street Walk Of Stars on Thursday night.
It’ll be handed over at a star-studded private party at the city’s showpiece new library.
The event is closed to the general public – but YOU and a pal could be there!
If you’re our winner you’ll get two ‘money can’t buy’ passes to the presentation.
Jeff, his family and friends will be there as Lord Mayor Mike Leddy hands over the star.
Funnyman Jasper Carrott will interview the rock legend onstage, and there’ll be a film tribute, too.
And it’s expected that several city celebrities will be on hand to wish Mr Blue Sky well.
All this, and complimentary buffet food and drink, too!
The Broad Street Walk of Stars honours those people who have made a significant contribution in the categories of music, television, film, radio, theatre, sport, business and literacy.
It is organised and funded by the Broad Street Business Improvement District, which represents the 260-plus businesses in the area.
The Broad Street area of Birmingham city centre is the Midland’s premier, mixed use entertainment and business district, which welcomes over 100,000 visitors per week and employs in excess of 12,000 people.

Uh, yes, Jon is definitely standing on a chair here (Alan is 6.2 and Jon is like a foot shorter than that)
