The country’s first new high street bank in 100 years unveiled its latest branch in Epsom town centre amid a whole host of entertainment.

Metro Bank, which launched in the UK in 2010, now occupies the former The Card Factory and Halifax bank unit on Epsom High Street.

To mark the opening, the bank held two days on celebrations on Friday and Saturday, with stilt-walkers, face-painting, live music and balloons.

A ‘dog-friendly bank’, a pack of dogs were waiting to welcome customers into the new store, which actively encourages dogs into the bank alongside their owners.

The store was officially opened by Chris Grayling MP and Epsom's mayor Councillor Colin Taylor, who cut the ribbon.
