A late-night shopping extravaganza is coming to the city.

Shoppers are invited to Sydney Street, in Brighton’s North Laine, for a night of exclusive discounts.

Many of the retailers in the street are extending their opening hours so people can come and browse after work.

The evening, led by Papersmiths, a stationery shop in the street, will see stores offering customers free samples and gifts with purchase.

A spokeswoman for Papersmiths said: “Sydney Street is in the midst of the enchanting Brighton North Laine district.

“It will come alive as local businesses join forces to bring you a night of shopping experiences.”

The shopping evening takes place on Thursday, December 14, from 6pm.
