The prize has been offered by Cllr John Colegrave, who as well as farming and running the highly popular farm shop and delicatessen, is this year's Banbury Town Mayor.

Sadly we will not see a large, public Christmas Lights switch on this year, so to make this Christmas a bit special for one family Mr Colegrave has offered a top-quality, farm fresh turkey in a competition based on Banbury's Christmas Lights.

Banbury’s old town shopping streets will enjoy a great Christmas atmosphere again this year.

Despite the shadow of coronavirus, the much-loved seasonal street illuminations will shine as brightly as ever and lift the spirits of shoppers as they search for gifts to give to their families and friends.

Thanks to BanburyTown Council, the traditional Christmas street lights and decorated Christmas trees will light up the whole of the town centre from November 29, through December and into the New Year.

The illuminations mark this special time of year and will create a feel-good factor for all residents. As always they will delight young and old alike and make Christmas shopping especially pleasurable.

Virus restrictions mean the popular annual switch-on event with a stage, live music, funfair, Christmas market and fireworks has been cancelled - but Christmas will still happen. The lights will go on. Banbury will be merry and bright for the festive season.
