More Vibrant

Budget £250,000 over five years

Businesses told us…

  • It is essential that Banbury has its own BID to compete with competitor town economies
  • Festival of Motoring and other events

Banbury BID will:

The BID plan is to create new events, both to cover a greater area and to boost quieter trading periods and also work to make existing events and activities even better.

  • Improve the vibrancy of the evening economy by helping drive up the overall attraction of the venues
  • Create a comprehensive annual programme of town centre street entertainment
  • Develop at least two more major town centre events to complement the annual events programme in the town
  • Ensure that events better link the main areas of the town with each other
  • Spearhead an extensive programme of high-quality speciality market events and extend the spread of these stalls throughout the town
  • Work with partners to scale up and so capitalise further on established current events to ensure that town centre businesses benefit even more from them
  • Work with the market operator to improve and attract more varied stalls to the existing street markets
