Late night opening for festive shopping

Shoppers in Tynemouth can pick up some festive bargains at an event in the village next week.

Tynemouth Independant Businesses will be holding a special late night Christmas shopping evening on Thursday, November 21.

It will consist of shops and cafes staying open later than usual, until 8pm, and offering on the night discounts, mulled wine drinks and nibbles to visitors.

A raffle will also be held on the night, with various prizes.

All the money raised from the raffle will go to The Teenage Cancer Trust charity at the Royal Victoria infirmary in Newcastle.
