26/01/2024

Its hoped the two new projections will help increase the number of visitors to the town

A new Winter Lights Festival is brightening up the dark winter evenings in Banbury town centre.  

The Festival is new to Banbury Town Council’s list of events for 2024 and follows on from the projections which have been seen during the Remembrance period and over Christmas.

Two shows can be viewed every evening after dark, running up to 10pm until February 25

At the Town Hall the projection revolves around a unique artistic sketch celebrating the historical significance and beauty of the Fine Lady statue.

The show at the Corn Exchange promises a dazzling kaleidoscope of colours, reacting to an exciting soundtrack.   The projection highlights the intricate architecture of the building and is a distinct departure from previous projections here.

Both films, which have been paid for by Banbury Town Council, are shown on a loop and will take around 10 minutes to see in their entirety.

It’s hoped they will help to increase the number of visitors into the town centre – one of the Council’s goals for 2024 as they aim to promote the town centre as a place to live, work, visit or invest.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Kieron Mallon said: “The Winter Light Festival showcases the town centre and attracts people from far and near, proving our commitment to Banbury people and visitors, doing our bit for the town centre economy.”
