Join us to light up Banbury this November, as we kick off the festive season with Banbury’s Festive Lantern Parade and the first viewing of the Festive Light Show on Cornhill Exchange (Market Place).


Festive Lantern Parade and Banbury Light Show

On Saturday 20th November, come back and collect your finished wintery lanterns for the Banbury Festive Lantern Parade. You’ll be joined by an awesome band playing some seasonal tunes and two cheeky elves, as we make our way through Castle Quay and a short walk around Banbury, leading to the big finale on the Old Corn Exchange (Cornhill) in Market Place where the first viewing of this year’s Festive Light Show will be shown.

This one is going to be even grander than last year’s, telling a festive story and bringing a real sense of magic to the Centre of Banbury.

Not making a lantern? That’s fine, come on down to be part of the first viewing of Banbury’s Festive Light Show and be the first to see it.

You can reserve your space in the parade by clicking the link to Experience Banbury’s Eventbrite page – Link.
