City councillor Imogen Thomas said: “The council is working to ensure the historic Covered Market thrives well into the future, and provides the variety of options for entertainment, socialising and shopping that customers want to see.

“We’re keen to hear how local people and visitors to the city would like extended opening hours to happen.

“This could be the first time in its long history the Covered Market will play a part in Oxford’s night time economy, potentially providing a meeting place for people going to the theatre or other social events.

“It would also give people a chance to visit and shop after work hours.”
