DJ Ryan Swain played a festive set live from Malton’s town centre on Saturday night in a bid to lift people’s mood and support local businesses in the town as they stayed open late for their christmas shopping event which was a huge success.
Ryan volunteered his time to set up and play a christmas themed set to the shoppers who were out in full support of the event. Ryan was surrounded by a large crowd that had all turned out for a socially distanced dance creating quite a spectacle. Paley’s Fruit & Veg kindly vacated space for Ryan to perform and accommodated him with a tent for shelter.
Ryan said “It was wonderful to see so many people turn out for the event and come and listen to me. I really enjoyed it and it was so great that all the local shops and eateries had clubbed together and were working united in trying to create something to look forward to by many in a difficult time. This year has undisputedly been the worst year in many people’s lives. It was so nice to see that people could still enjoy themselves whilst adhering to the current rules and regulations in place for covid 19. I hope they all have a fabulous christmas. Big shout out to Helen and Mark for asking me to do it.”
This was Ryan’s last live performance of 2020 and he has just found out hee has been nominated for a National Entertainment Award for the third year consecutively.
