Festive food, drink and entertainment will be on offer when Budleigh Salterton holds its late-night Christmas shopping evening on Friday, December 10. 

The chair of Budleigh Salterton Chamber of Commerce said this is a chance for local residents to come out and support the town’s traders, rather than shopping online. 

Helen Warren told the Journal: “The Christmas lights are up, the Christmas tree is now decorated, so as far as we’re concerned it’s ‘all systems go’. 

There will be music from Exmouth A Cappella and a female musician who plays a piano mounted on her bicycle.

Professor Bumble will be providing children's entertainment. 

Santa will be handing out Christmas presents at the Tourist Information Centre between 6pm and 8pm, and there will be mulled wine and mince pies on offer there.

Cake will be available at Budleigh Unwrapped, the Pebble Studio will provide nibbles, and Sampson’s Butchery will be laying on a barbecue.
