The Christmas Lights are on!


Banbury's Christmas Countdown underway as lights turned on

Banbury’s youngest-ever Christmas Lights guests had a day to remember at an action-packed switch-on festival on Sunday.   Charlotte Atherton, aged 6, and Emily Barker-Fox, 7, followed in the footsteps of TV stars and local celebrities when they helped town mayor John Colegrave turn on the street decorations.

The event added seasonal sparkle to a dull weather day and the switch-on was a fabulous finale to an occasion that brought Christmas cheer to shoppers and visitors.   The lights festival, organised by Banbury Town Council and sponsored by Castle Quay, included a Christmas market, funfair, Santa’s grotto, food and drink stalls, face painting, dance displays, choirs, live music and a firework display.
