Over three weeks of arts and culture events that showcase the best of home-grown talent alongside national and international acts.

Basingstoke Festival

Basingstoke Festival 2017 was the best yet!

Described as “the best and probably most important community event held in Basingstoke”, the sixth annual festival ran this summer from Friday 16 June to Sunday 9 July.

The theme for 2017 was ‘Born in the Borough’ and included international artists and big name acts alongside local talent and an array of ‘Festival in the Community’ events which helped showcase arts and performances in underused places.

In addition, there was a number of events held to celebrate Jane Austen, the world-renowned 19th century author who was born in the borough at Steventon and drafted some of her best known works while living in the area. July marked the 200th anniversary of her death and provided the perfect opportunity to highlight how her work still entertains and inspires people today.
