A month-long showcase of arts talent is returning to Banbury for a second year.

We’re Here Now launched in May last year to celebrate the work of art and design students at Banbury and Bicester College.

More than 2,000 people engaged with the initative, which included pop-up shops, exhibitions and community activities held across the town centre.

The first exhibition this year opened last Saturday in Castle Quay, with a second pop-up shop set to open on Saturday, June 6. Both will open Wednesdays to Sundays until June 20.

Louise Williams, one of the organisers, said: “We were delighted with the response to last year’s events and are looking forward to engaging with many more people this year.”
