Speaking on behalf of the businesses involved, Caroline Stanyer, joint owner of Stanley and Lottie on Penrhyn Road, said: "Colwyn Bay's small, local business community is growing and is the heart of the town.

"The late night Christmas shopping evenings are a great opportunity for the local community and visitors to shop, grab a bite to eat, have a festive drink and explore what the town has to offer.

"There will also be special offers and Christmas treats galore.


"We would love people to support us."

The town's artisan markets will run on Saturday, November 18 and Saturday, December 9 from 10am until 4pm.
