Festival Place Lock Your Love Campaign

Recently, I was contacted by the lovely people at Festival Place Shopping Centre in Basingstoke about their latest special event, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Inspired by romantic locations around the world; from the Pont des Arts in Paris, to the Ponte Vecchio in Florence and Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, Festival Place is offering shoppers the chance to ‘lock their love’ on a special heart sculpture in Porchester Square this Valentine’s Day.

Launching on 31st January in association with The Breeze radio station, and running for two weeks until Valentine’s Day on 14th February, you will be given the opportunity to personalise a padlock with a tribute to your loved one and attach it to the Festival Place heart. By taking a picture of your padlock and sharing on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the #lockyourlove hashtag, you will also have the chance to win Big Brand prizes from Festival Place retailers including Nando’s, Giraffe, Wagamama, Build-a-Bear, Thorntons and The Perfume Shop. I headed down there last Saturday to take part and personalise my very own cute pink padlock.

Two local artists, Helen Dyne and Louise Hight, who met recently through All Our Own Crafts, a pop-up shop in Festival Place promoting local crafters, have lovingly created the heart sculpture. As well as personalising your own padlock and entering the competition, you will also be encouraged to share the love this Valentine’s Day by donating to Festival Place’s chosen local charity, the Ark Cancer Centre, when you receive your padlock in the centre.

As I mentioned, last Saturday I headed down to Festival Place for the launch, and took rather a lot of photos, which I thought I would share with you!

Will you be popping down to Festival Place to Lock Your Love?
