Service men and women who served their country in conflicts around the world will be guests of honour at the annual celebration that turns on the town’s festive illuminations.
The switch-on will follow an afternoon of entertainment for all the family – including a fairground in Bridge Street, seasonal market in Market Place, Santa’s grotto, free face painting, and Christmas decoration workshops.
On stage will be dance, choir and pantomime performances. The lights will be switched on at 6pm and the now traditional firework display will follow.
“The Christmas Lights Switch-On is a great opportunity to honour local people who have contributed to society.
“Banbury is a town with a distinguished military history and this will be a tribute to the town’s service men and women past and present.
“As president of the Banbury branch of the Royal British Legion I am delighted that we are honouring our war veterans in this way.”
The event begins at 1pm on Sunday 26 November with the switch on at 6pm outside the town hall.
