Lock29 will not only be an exciting new community destination, but also be England’s first national centre dedicated to food and drink transparency, championed by Happerley!

Happerley works on behalf of the UK food industry and consumers to promote honesty about the journey of the food we eat – from food provenance to food miles and environmental impacts.

This is where Lock29 comes in! Lock29 is working alongside Happerley to open the country’s first national centre for provenance within the space. Happerley is striving to achieve Gold Standard Certification for all the food and drink business tenants within Lock29. The Gold Standard is a mark awarded to food and drink producers able to name the exact sources of their core ingredients back to the primary producers, on a national scale.

turnerbates have designed this unique and exciting offer, which will include a food hall of diverse food and drink artisans, an independent retail offer, a casual pop-up cinema for secret cinema clubs and educational activities, and above all be an inclusive entertainment space for the whole community.

Lock29 is part of the wider vision to breathe new life into the canal side destination and rethink a critical, abandoned space with a creativity that will benefit the entire community. It will complement the forthcoming Castle Quay Waterfront development, with both working together to enhance Banbury's wider appeal.

Overall, these new leisure-led offers will help to attract visitors and investment into the town while making Banbury a better place to live and work.
