Local DJ and presenter Ryan Swain will be volunteering his time, to play Christmas themed music to entertain shoppers in Malton at the late night Christmas shopping events, organised by local traders.

"I want to help support local businesses and hopefully spread lots of festive cheer in the town, I think after the year we have had, we all really need it," he said.

Ryan will be helping set the Christmas mood with the Salvation Army on Saturday nights from 12th December as Malton’s shops extend opening hours up to 8pm.

The town is providing two hours free parking for everyone visiting too.
