A 10-screen cinema, 117 room hotel and 30,100sq ft of supermarket retail space are among the dazzling attractions promised at a new Oxfordshire shopping complex.

The owners of Banbury's Castle Quay district are investing £60m to create what they call 'the future of moviegoing' and the 'future of dining'.

The whole development will be anchored by a new Lidl supermarket, a 'Light Cinema' and a Premier Inn hotel.

After years of planning, construction is finally set to start in the coming weeks on the enormous build.

Oxford Mail:

The whole project is expected to take two years.

The new development has also been designed to act as an attractive link between neighbouring sites such as the Spiceball Leisure Centre, Mill arts centre and the rest of the town.

The whole Castle Quay area is owned by Cherwell District Council, and the authority is spearheading the grand redesign.

Councillor Tony Ilott said the start of work in the coming weeks would be a 'defining moment' for the whole town and its residents.

Oxford Mail:

He went on: "The council will deliver an exceptional new offering for our town centre, an investment that will allow us to provide the best in class for our residents.
