Cherwell District Council – ‘Lock29’

Cherwell District Council have released the following news regarding a new venture at Castle Quay, Banbury – 

Lock29: Revolutionary leisure, food and beverage destination coming to Castle Quay

On behalf of Castle Quay, we are pleased to announce a game changing new anchor for the shopping centre in Banbury – Lock29. 

A unique, creative leisure space filling 30,000 sq ft of the former BHS store, this vibrant food and beverage anchor will reinvigorate this empty space and create a new destination within the town. 
Lock29 will open in March 2020 and offers something currently not found in the region. Taking its name from the Banbury Lock, it will be a one-of-a-kind leisure destination that seeks to bring the town’s history into the new venue and offer an experience like no other. The diverse offer within Lock29 will provide something for the whole of Banbury and beyond.  
This new focus for Castle Quay will feature diverse and exciting food and drink artisans, a casual screening venue for secret cinema clubs and educational activities,   while also extending to florists, barbers and a variety of other products and services. This sustainable community destination will have a multifunctional events space at its centre, delivering a unique and memorable events programme that will appeal to all. 
The local community will have its first taste of Lock29 later this year when the screening venue opens, showing films and educational programmes for children.
