The unusually-named Banbury Cake
(it takes its name from the locally made currant-filled spiced flat pastry cake) is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to homes in and around the area informally known as “Banburyshire”
, including the town of Banbury itself, nearby villages in the northern half of the Cherwell District in north-eastern Oxfordshire, Chipping Norton and northern West Oxfordshire, Brackley and South Northamptonshire, and Shipston-on-Stour in south-eastern Warwickshire.
It was founded in 1973. It’s published by Newsquest (Oxfordshire). The former editorial offices in Banbury have now closed; the Cake is edited from Newsquest (Oxfordshire)’s central offices in Oxford.
It comes out on Thursdays. An e-edition’s also available free on the website.
