Throughout 2007, Banburyshire Media covered a number of events, in and around Banbury.
Banburyshire Events was the resulting multi-media product from Banburyshire Media to promote, and support, the music and heritage events in and around the town of Banbury.
It was a co-ordinated approach to let people know what was coming up, produce coverage of the event, and provide a customised two disc CD and CDROM set, called "Banburyshire Events", which could be ordered on the day, as a momento of the event.
As part of our support for these events, the organisers received half of the monies raised from sales.
The calendar, below, gives you some idea of the range of events which take place in the area, and contains
contact details, where possible, so you can find out about this year's occasion.
Keep in touch with the latest information by subscribing to the RSS feed. Use "podcatcher" software, such as Feedreader or Itunes, to automatically download updates to your PC.
