Traders in Stoke Newington Church Street are getting into the festive spirit with a late-night shopping event today (Thu).

The trendy shopping district will be given a Christmas makeover with activities for all the family until 8pm.

It is being coordinated by Andi’s Restaurant and the Local Buyers Club – a discount scheme for independent shops – who have enlisted the Hackney Song Works Choir and even arranged a treasure hunt.

Kids can visit Santa’s grotto and hop aboard a fire engine and there will be mulled wine and mince pies to go around too.

Andi Oliver, of Andi’s, said: “It’s wonderful so many local shops, pubs and restaurants are supporting the event – what can be better than diving into your Christmas shopping at night all helped along with a delicious drink?” For more information and times, visit christmasonchurchstreet.com.
