Fiona Moores, General Manager at The Magdalen Chapter, said: “What better way to celebrate summer and the launch of late night shopping than by bringing the taste of Spain to shoppers. I’m really looking forward to the city having a bigger buzz in the evenings and the new feel Late Night Shopping will bring to the centre.
