Be Bright in Banbury this winter

Winter, in particular Christmas and New Year, are full of traditions bringing people together to celebrate and reflect. But with many seasonal events put on ice, we are doing things a little differently this year.

We want to keep you safe and give you the confidence to be in Banbury this winter. So, starting in November and running into January, we will be lighting up buildings in our town centre. 

Working alongside Banbury Town Council with support from our 539 contributing businesses and organisations, we want you to ‘Be Bright in Banbury’. Showing daily from dusk until late, our stunning light displays are a safe alternative to big festive gatherings. 


Winter light projections

We are keeping the exact design of our Banbury projections under wraps, but here is an example of what you can expect to see.


Remembrance and Christmas

The light projections will arrive in November at the Town Hall for Remembrance then moving on to Cornhill Exchange near the Castle Quay Shopping Centre, Market Place entrance until December 28. Expect imaginative scenes and seasonal music as you experience Banbury.

Welcome in a bright New Year

As we say goodbye to Christmas we look forward to a new beginning. From December 29 until January 5, be prepared for fireworks and faces of local heroes to appear once again on the Cornhill Exchange as we welcome in 2021 in a positive light. 

Be the reason Banbury shines this winter

2020 has highlighted how much we care about our loved ones, our town and our neighbours. Enjoy the displays as you shop late afternoon, finish work or experience Banbury at nighttime, helping to support our local businesses.

Together, let’s keep the light shining in Banbury this winter.
