Comics and cartoons to come to life in Banbury.

Shoppers in Banbury’s old streets won’t be dreaming if they’re in a queue with Sponge Bob Square Pants on Saturday 1 September.

It will be a day when comics and cartoons come to life – and town centre visitors could bump into Bananaman, Homer Simpson, Peppa Pig, or any other make-believe character, as the streets and lanes play host to a fantasy-world, everyone-invited party.

Residents young and old are being encouraged to dress up as their comic or cartoon favourites and join in the fun.

The party will highlight Banbury’s old town streets and bring back memories of shopping in the not-too-distant past.

In the days before shopping centres, supermarkets and out-of-town retail parks, townspeople crowded into the small mostly independent stores in High Street, Parson’s Street, Church Lane and Broad Street for their food, clothes, toys and other goods.

September’s party will recreate those days and the streets and lanes will be action-packed and alive with colour.

Punch and Judy, cosplay theatre – in which performers appear in self-made character costumes, and an obstacle course will be popular attractions.

Free face painting, balloon modelling, street entertainers, live music and free giveaways will add to the enjoyment.

Mayor Shaida Hussain said:

“Many senior residents in Banbury look back to the old days with real affection.

“Of course, Banbury has grown tremendously over the years and shopping habits have changed, but the old town party will revive memories of days gone by and will showcase today’s old-town shops.”

The old town party will run alongside the annual Street Organ Festival.

Organ grinders from around the country will generate an ‘old-time’ atmosphere and raise money for local charities.

Organised by Banbury Town Council and Banbury Old Town Businesses, the free-admission party will run from 9.30am to 3.30pm.
