MORE THAN 40 shops will open late in Ryde tomorrow night (Thursday).

Ryde Christmas Late Night Shopping will be something of a festive treat, complete with live entertainment and in-store promotions and discounts.

Entertainment will be provided by Huxley the magician, Enchanted Isle, Horse Box Theatre, Vectis Brass Band, Mama Rocks Choir and more.

The shop local scheme is being supported by Ryde Town Council and is being delivered by Ryde Business Association.

Don't forget to pick up a copy of Friday's County Press as it will contain the Ryde Christmas supplement, for more local shopping inspiration.
