Basingstoke Festival 2021


Events across the Festival

An opportunity to play your part in Basingstoke’s biggest summer events programme and discover art in unusual places in unusual times!

There’s fun for all the family at this year’s Basingstoke Festival. The annual arts festival, in its ninth year, will showcase the best of the arts locally, nationally and internationally – from music to dance, visual art to theatre, we are thrilled to offer the opportunity to sponsor this year’s Basingstoke Festival. Across Basingstoke and the surrounding areas you will find acts such as Urban Astronaut from Highly Sprung Theatre Company that combines storytelling with stunning design and an aerial performance, using a unique travelling flying machine that suspends the performer 20 feet in the air. Mimbre Acrobats will return to the festival with their quirky show Lifted, a breathtaking and highly-skilled acrobatic piece of performance art, and children and their families will also be invited to look through the windows and doors of My House, a circus theatre experience from Apocalyptic Circus.

Local artists and organisations including Proteus, Scratchbuilt Productions, Pumpkin Pantos and Junk Jodie Arts and Crafts will be featured in the programme highlighting the best of arts and culture Basingstoke has to offer.

The packed programme also features a series of outdoor cinema screenings, Pictures in the Park, showing popular movies in a brand-new picturesque location. Film titles will include Frozen 2, Back to the Future and The Greatest Showman plus many more!
