Our Story

Lock29 is a sustainable community destination that will open in Banbury in 2020.

The venue will feature diverse and exciting food and drink artisans, a casual pop-up cinema for secret cinema clubs and educational activities, space for events which will be open to the whole community, and an edgy independent retail offer that binds it all together. Lock29 is your destination, a completely unique creative space that will pay homage to its hometown, whilst reaching out to visitors from far and wide.

Lock29 started life as a vision to breathe new life into the canal side destination and rethink a critical, abandoned space with such creativity that the benefits for the community will be immediate. The diverse offer within Lock29 will provide something for the whole of Banbury and beyond.

It is incredibly exciting not least because there is nothing like this in the district, but because there is nothing like it in the region. Lock29 will be a unique leisure destination that seeks to bring the community to the canalside as well as increase footfall to the town from visitors from all over the UK.

Lock29 is proud to be the home of Happerley England - the National Centre of Food and Drink Provenance. Happerley England will become a hub to engage England’s finest producers with those who truly value food and drink provenance.
