Festive shoppers are being given a cracking deal by Worcester City Council in the run up to Christmas.
Shoppers heading into the centre to look for gifts and soak up the yule-tide atmosphere during late night opening each Thursday in December before Christmas can take advantage of free parking after 6pm in the council's car parks.
The deal applies to council-run car parks from 6pm on December 5, 12 and 19.
The council is also offering drivers a chance to pay for three hours and get a full day's parking on Sundays in December up to Christmas. This starts on Sunday December 1 and concludes on Sunday December 22.
All of Worcester City Council's car parks have retained the prestigious 'Park-Mark' award that is issued by the British Parking Association and the Association of Chief Police Officers. That means they are safe, well lit and are well managed.

Drivers coming into the city while the annual Victorian Christmas Fayre is on are being advised that the Cornmarket carpark will be closed from 3pm on Wednesday November 27 until midnight on Sunday December 1. The four-day fayre starts on Thursday November 28 and finishes on Sunday December 1.
