Steyning High Street was packed as thousands of people got into the festive spirit at the town’s annual Christmas extravaganza.
Steyning’s late-night shopping event was held last night, with the High Street closed to traffic so stalls and entertainment could take centre-stage.
The annual event is organised by the Steyning and District Business Chamber, which also organises the High Street’s Christmas trees and decorations.
Chamber secretary Dean Haysom said: “We had fabulous entertainment, stalls, fairground and a tremendous turnout.
“We’ve had some nice feedback – somebody said it makes you proud to live in a place like Steyning.”
The event fielded a wide range of stalls for the thousands of people ready to kick off their Christmas shopping.
Mr Haysom added: “We have beautiful old buildings in High Street and the street lends itself to being closed off for an event of this sort.
“There are a lot of different community groups in Steyning – a huge thank you to the people who were involved.”
Mr Haysom said the annual event takes six months to plan but is well worth it.
“It is a huge task and we all end up exhausted at the end of it.
“It is just a tremendous community event, it is really rewarding taking part in it.”
