Festival Place Basingstoke

Festival Place are passionate about supporting the local community and are delighted to have joined with Hampshire Fare to support some of our region’s finest food and drink producers.  

Their vibrant 1.1m sq ft shopping centre is in the centre of Basingstoke, just off the M3. They are the ideal destination for easy, everyday shopping, as well as somewhere to visit for special occasions and fun family days out.

They are somewhere people can come to relax, socialise, workout, eat and shop – and love welcoming new visitors and catching up with our local, loyal customers. Over the past few years, they have been working hard to make Festival Place even more enticing by attracting more big brand names in both retail and dining. Since 2015, they have seen 27 new stores open and our footfall has increased by more than two million, taking the annual total to more than 22 million customers. Whether it’s technology, entertainment, fashion or food, Festival Place has everything you need under one roof. 

It is home to more than 160 big name stores, including Jack Wills, Next, Fat Face, Marks & Spencer, Apple, H&M, Zara, New Look, Debenhams, Pandora and Swarovski. A wide range of restaurants, cafes and bars makes them an appealing destination for foodies, and whether it’s a romantic dinner for two, a business lunch, coffee and a catch-up with friends, Friday night cocktails, or just a quick bite on the go, there is something for everyone.

Festival Place has more than 20 mouth-watering eateries, from the French Cote Brasserie to the Japanese Kokoro and The Sushi Maki, as well as firm favourites Nando’s, Wagamama, Pizza Express and Pret.

But Festival Place isn’t just about shopping and dining – from stylish fashion showcases to art installations, workshops and student takeovers, there is an exciting calendar of events for brilliant family days out throughout the year.

Their fab foodie credentials are underlined at our famous annual East Street food festival, which sees live cooking demonstrations from big names in the food community and delicious samples from our food and beverage retailers.

Festival Place is fully committed to protecting the environment and was the first shopping centre to operate an on-site Materials Recovery Facility and Food Digestion Facility, turning food waste into grey water.

It’s easy to reach them, too. The bus station is on the doorstep and the train station just a five-minute walk away. The centre is just minutes off Junction 6 of the M3, and our car park is nearing the end of a multi-million-pound refurbishment project which has given it an impressive facelift, both internally and externally.
