A day out for all the family at Festival Place

A fun day out for all the family at Festival Place.

Whether you’re looking for a mooch around the shops, a morning workout, a sensational supper or to sit back and relax at the movies, Festival Place Shopping Centre has something for everyone.

Here’s what a day out at Festival Place might look like – but you can make it your own!

Morning workout

Get the day started with healthy, awesome fun! The fabulous Flip Out trampoline park is geared up for families, with unlimited toddler times, soft play and autism-friendly sessions. Enjoy foam pits, the three-zone indoor ninja assault course, an adrenaline pumping 28 foot drop super slide, and 10 interactive climbing walls. Or you can dive in at Basingstoke Sports Centre – whether you fancy a morning class or gym session or even a dip in the pool – there’s something suitable for all abilities.

Shopping galore

Festival Place is a shoppers’ delight! Whether you want fashion, entertainment, technology, or food, everything you need is all under one roof – and there are plenty of sustainable and zero waste options too. Home to more than 200 brands including M&S, Next, Rituals, H&M, Jack & Jones, Fat Face, Apple, Pandora, Schuh and Superdry, there are also lots of brilliant independent businesses that bring something completely different to the mix. Check out vintage comics and action figures and retro games at Kushti Comics, and homeware and gifts at Rosie Rose and Fig & Fox.

Dining out

There’s a global food offering at Festival Place, from Five Guys burgers to sizzling Mexican street food at El Bigote in Festival Square.  There are great independents too, with the flavours of Africa on offer at Nigerian restaurant Afrizi, and sensational big plate specials at Festival Street Kitchen. With more than 20 mouth-watering eateries dotted around the centre and outside in Festival Square, you’re never far from a delicious meal!

Movie time!

We’re spoilt for choice for blockbusters this year at the state-of-the-art Vue multiplex. Get the popcorn ready, sit back and relax with hours of bliss.

Whatever your day out at Festival Place, make it a great one! For more information and opening times please visit the Festival Place website.
