Castle Quay and Banbury Light Up Together for Christmas

Castle Quay in Banbury will turn on its spectacular new Christmas lights on Sunday 28 November at 4:30pm. The team at the Sunshine Centre, Castle Quay’s official charity partner, will have the honour of turning on the lights this year.

For the very first time the lights inside Castle Quay Shopping, Lock29 and Castle Quay Waterfront will mirror the town’s Christmas lighting. A mix of classic and modern light pieces have been selected to bring the whole town together in a very magical and stylish way.

Within Castle Quay, elegant cylinders of light have been suspended from the Cherwell Court dome and stylish light curtains will light-up this once bare mezzanine. Cherwell Walk and the Quay Mall will be illuminated in light and a charming LED tree will be positioned in Castle Court for visitors to enjoy. Green fir garlands and Christmas trees will adorn Bridge Walk and Lock29 will have some extra sparkle this Christmas as gold potted LED trees will be installed inside this venue. There will also be fun photo opportunity features throughout the centre for the public to enjoy.

Banbury Town’s lights will be switched on at 5pm by local hero Prabhu Natarajan, who delivered hundreds of food parcels to families during the Covid pandemic. Banbury Town Council has also arranged some fairground rides and choirs will perform on stage in the build-up to the switch-on.
