Shoppers in Banbury’s old streets on Saturday found themselves in make-believe land as comics and cartoons were brought to life.
Traders and visitors dressed up as their favourite characters and the streets and lanes played host to a fun-filled fantasy-world party.
Cartoon and comic heroes mingled with shoppers and posed for photographs with admirers young and old.
Face painting, balloon modelling, street entertainers, live music and free giveaways added to the enjoyment.
The event brought back memories of when the old streets were the town’s main retail areas – before shopping centres, supermarkets, out-of-town retail parks and on-line purchasing.
Shoppers were reminded that the old streets are still full of interesting shops, pubs and restaurants.
“It was a wonderful atmosphere and everyone had a great time. Children were thrilled to see life-size versions of characters they see in films or on TV.
“The day was a colourful reminder that Banbury’s old streets have much to offer and are well-worth visiting.”
Organ grinders from around the country generated an ‘old-time’ atmosphere and raised money for local charities.
“I was impressed with the enthusiasm of the organists. Some were local and others travelled long distances – South Wales, Kent, Leicester, for instance – to help Banbury’s good causes.”
The ‘Old Town Party’ was organised by Banbury Town Council and Banbury Old Town Businesses and supported by Banbury BID.
