Shop late until 20:00, every Thursday and Friday. That’s the invitation from Festival Place. Shops are open for an extra hour on these days until 20:00 (open until 19:00 Monday to Wednesday) to give you more time to fit in your shopping after work as the week draws to a close.
Looking for a new outfit for that big night out? Select from designer wear at Debenhams or seek out French Connection, Phase Eight and Zara. For a trendy look, why not try Top Shop, Oasis or River Island; alternatively, go casual and head to GAP, Superdry or Fat Face.
Dinner party this weekend? Impress your guests with something new for your home from Laura Ashley, Next or TK Maxx, or pick up that kitchen essential from ProCook. There’s still time to unearth a new recipe by heading to Waterstones for the latest Jamie Oliver or Mary Berry book.
If you’ve been working hard and feel like treating yourself, the Apple store on the Upper Level has the latest iPhone 6s, iPad Pro and MacBook Air. Alternatively, treat the kids with something from Hawkin’s Bazaar or The Entertainer, or a Star Wars teddy from Build-A-Bear.
Of course, if you’re shopping until 20:00, you might as well treat yourself to some dinner at one the many mouth-watering eateries, including Wagamama, Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Ask Italian. Perhaps a pint too at The Angel, or a cocktail at Las Iguanas or Coal.
With a multi-screen Vue cinema showing all the latest releases and Basingstoke Sports Centre for that all-important gym workout, Festival Place has everything you need for life after work, all right on Chineham Park’s doorstep. And don’t forget, parking is just £1 all evening when you arrive after 17:00 and leave before 02:00.
