Councillor Jane Evison, portfolio holder for economic growth, investment and tourism at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said:
“Whilst the Christmas events in Beverley are well established, it is fantastic to see so many of our towns and villages getting involved with markets and festivals of their own. These activities are a fantastic way of showing support to our local businesses whilst also enjoying this joyful time of year within our communities.
“The late-night shopping offering will be a major benefit to those residents who work during normal opening hours and I look forward to seeing our high streets thriving in the festive period.”
