An artistic youngster has helped to design the poster for this year’s Christmas Late Night Shopping event.

Sidmouth Chamber of Commerce (CoC) worked with the students from Sidmouth College as part of a competition to design the poster which would be used to advertise one of the town's biggest calendar dates.

A CoC spokesman said they were delighted to announce that Year 8 student Matilda Bentall designed this year's winning poster.

The 2019 event will take place on Friday, December 6.

Sally Mynard, of Sidmouth Chamber of Commerce and organiser of this year's event, said: "We would like to say thank to all the students who took part in the competition, they are all very talented, which made judging very difficult.
