Hello all and on the eve of the Old Town Spring Festival we at Visit Banbury thought we would do a blog mini series to celebrate three of the destination stores in town.
A sad one to start, but a really cherished addition to Church Lane over the last six months is Record Savings aka Pink Pig, the Independent Record and Cult Merchandise Shop.
Unfortunately 2nd May is the last day of their lease but they are leaving on a high with their real record store day sale continuing with up to 30% off across the shop.
In addition, in light of recent events in Nepal in a very kind gesture, they have decided to donate 50% of the profit made on Saturday, 2nd May to the DEC’s Nepal earthquake appeal so go and #VisitBanbury shop local and support them on their last day of trading.
And we hope they’ll come back again very soon !!

**Update – April 2016**
After a wonderful year of posting pictures every day Kate had to step down due to other commitments and so the feed has been languishing a little waiting for another kind person to take it on and happily we can announce that since yesterday new photos of Banbury will now be posted on a regular basis so keep an eye out!
As the Visit Banbury project gains momentum we are widening the social media focus to include other platforms rather than just being Twitter focused.
We know different audiences use different platforms and we can convey our messages about Banbury in different ways via these other social media tools.
Instagram is a case in point ….
Kate, one of our team members and a very keen amateur photographer who has a real eye for the unusual, quirky and intriguing photos, has taken on the Visit Banbury feed and is posting photos daily which reflect the diversity of architecture, heritage, culture, environment and community which exists within Banbury.
We also intend to use Instagram as a means of publishing output from some of the photographic-based project work Visit Banbury will do, whether tourism related or to bring together the huge number of photographers in Banbury who are keen to explore and rediscover their home town through their lenses.
