LATE-NIGHT shopping went down a storm on Friday as revellers filled the streets with festive spirit, giving the town a commercial boost.

Hundreds descended on the High Street to enjoy the festivities with shops opening from 6pm to 8.30pm.

Stalls in the street sold everything from wooden carvings to cakes and glow sticks while musicians played and carols were sung.

Banana Travel kept their Caribbean theme again this year providing people with rum punch and the unmistakable sound of steel drums, putting a different spin on Christmas as we know it.
