The event, held in King Street, also included several charity stalls, a craft fair in the town hall, and street performances.

The day market was also extended for the night event, which began at 5.30pm on Friday, and ran until 8.30pm.

Patrick Hawke-Smith, from the Saffron Walden Initiative, which organised the event, said: "We had a great evening for late night shopping and 26 charities and community groups were able to take pitches in King Street.

"They brought all sorts of festive fun to the town centre, as well as good advice and awareness of valuable causes.
