There's a lovely experience created by the independent shops and cafes of Olney, with a unique 'after hours' experience on Thursday 29th November. The annual late night shopping evening is popular and very festive and lasts until around 8pm.
Imagine the lights from small, interesting shops creating a magical glow in the winter darkness; a town alive with the buzz of people buying for loved ones - or grabbing a mince pie or mulled wine as the brass band plays Christmas songs.
This is a wonderful chance to soak up the atmosphere of the town and enjoy some Christmas cheer, with nibbles and coffee. Perfume testing, food sampling, advice on clothes: whatever you want to do you can with our fabulous range of unique shops.
Parking is free in Olney. And you can plan your visit by checking out the list of shops here on this site.
Most of the VisitOlney.com partners will be open until 8 o'clock - though some stay open beyond that too!
